About the lunch seminar
STS Lunch Seminar runs as an undergraduate course through the Program in Science, Technology, and Society at Tufts. We expect it to be attended by a mix of undergraduates, faculty, and grads from nearby programs. The seminar meets Fridays from 12-1:15. Before the pandemic, we met in the Sophia Gordon Multipurpose Room. (Directions). Now, we meet online via Zoom. Are you interested in attending? Send an email to email@example.com.
Seminar format: speakers should expect to present for about 40 minutes, leaving at least 30 minutes for questions and discussion. Students who are enrolled in the course will be expected to turn in a short response paper each week about the presentation from the previous week.
All are welcome, whether enrolled or not, whether Tufts-affiliated or not.
When this seminar was in-person, we served lunch each week. Unfortunately, we can’t serve lunch while we’re virtual.
