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.
This term the McGill HPS series continues with a selection of seminar presentations and public lectures. All are welcome. Please note the variations in day, time, and place.
Ce semestre, notre série revient, avec des conférences en format atelier, et des conférences publiques. Ouvert à tou(te)s. Veuillez noter les changements d'horaire, de jour et de lieu.
