Every year Science in Human Culture sponsors the Klopsteg lecture series, bringing 10 to 15 scholars to campus whose research deepens public understanding of science and generates robust exchanges across disciplinary and departmental lines. SHC also coordinates a doctoral colloquium that meets three times each quarter, allowing its graduate affiliates a chance to share work and ideas with their peers and faculty.
