The “Making Publics” project illuminates the artistic, intellectual, religious, social, and political culture of Britain and Western Europe between 1500 and 1700, and it will also have a bearing on issues that confront modern society, especially questions about media, the culture market, and the possibilities of social agency on the part of cultural producers and consumers.

The McGill HPS seminar is a revived interdisciplinary group seeking to bring together scholars from all four universities in Montreal who work in the history and philosophy of science and various aspects of science and technology studies. We warmly invite all interested scholars to come and participate in our seminar series. Sessions will be followed by an informal social hour at Thomson House.
