The Modern Sciences Working Group, located in the Department of the History of Science, is a student-led forum for graduate students, faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and visiting scholars to share ideas and discuss their work. During the academic term it meets Wednesdays from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm, in Science Center Room 252 and over Zoom.
Topics generally focus on the history of the sciences, broadly understood, from the nineteenth century onward. Through regular meetings, the group generates lively and productive conversations about relevant topics, gives graduate students the opportunity to obtain useful feedback on their projects, and keep students in contact with scholars in the history of modern science community. It is funded by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
The faculty sponsors of the working group are Alex Csiszar and Victor Seow.
