This fall, our lunch seminar will be completely in-person. Some of our speakers will be in-person, and some will be virtual. At this point in time, we will not serve food at the lunch seminar (a contradiction, we know). Know that we are working to restore lunch to the lunch seminar.
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, staff, and graduate students from nearby programs. The seminar meets Fridays from 12-1:15pm EST. This semester, we will be in Lincoln-Filene Hall, Room 201 (the old Rabb Room, as opposed to the new one in Barnum Hall). For an address, directions, and a campus map, click here.
Seminar format: speakers should expect to present for about 35-45 minutes, leaving at least 30 minutes for questions and discussion. Students who are enrolled in the course will be expected to write responses to the presentations each week.
All are welcome, whether enrolled or not, whether Tufts-affiliated or not.
