History & Philosophy of Science Seminar Series

The History and Philosophy of Science program runs a weekly seminar series at 1pm Tuesdays during semester. All are welcome to attend.

The seminars feature talks on the full range of the discipline, including historical studies, philosophical insights, social and cultural analyses of science, and metaresearch into scientific practices. Presenters include local, interstate and international scholars ranging from postgraduate students to distinguished professors.

A schedule of forthcoming talks, as well as details of past talks, can be found on ourĀ website.

In 2022, seminars will be streamed online with an in-person option at the University of Melbourne. To receive a link to the online seminar, ensure that you are subscribed to the HPS seminar mailing list. Seminars are occasionally held at alternative times or days, so check the website or subscribe to the mailing list for up-to-date information.

In Semester 2 we will be again running seminars as hybrid events with both in-person options at Parkville and online streaming. Unfortunately, due to the pressures of timetabling, we will be using two different rooms in the Old Arts Building: Old Arts 156, where we were last semester, and the North Theatre on Level 2. Please do pay attention from week to week as to the venue.
