Early Modern History of Science Reading Group
The STS cluster sponsors the USC/Huntington Library EMSI History of Science Reading Group. The group meets once a month (usually the first Friday of the month) to discuss members' work in progress, current issues in the history of Early Modern science, and recent publications. Meetings are informal and held in members' homes (in the vicinity of the Huntington). All are welcome. For further information, or to suggest topics, please contact the reading group's co-ordinator, Alexander Marr at
Organized by STS Research Cluster member K. C. Cole, CategoricallyNot! is an occasional series of Sunday evenings dedicated to exploring the common ground of art, science, politics and what not at Santa Monica Art Studios.
