CHSTM Seminars, University of Manchester

The University of Manchester are very pleased to announce that CHSTM Research Seminars are back. They aim to produce a varied programme featuring invited speakers from institutions across Britain and the world, ranging from well-known senior figures to promising younger members of the profession.

They are particularly keen to foster an interdisciplinary atmosphere; alongside all aspects of the history of science, technology and medicine, our speakers’ institutional backgrounds have included science studies, cultural history, social anthropology, museums work and many other fields.

Unless otherwise indicated, meetings will take place in the CHSTM Seminar Room, 2.57 Simon Building (see the University’s maps and travel page for directions). They will also stream seminars via zoom. Links will be announced before the seminars. 

Sign up for the mailing list to receive updates and check the CHSTM Blog for individual seminar announcements and abstracts.

Please contact the convenors, Professor Ian Burney or Dr Neil Pemberton if you have any queries about our seminar arrangements.

CHSTM Research Seminar Programme

Lunchtime (Work in Progress) Seminars

This is a less formal weekly series of half-hour papers and work-in-progress reports. The lunchtime seminar provides valuable experience for graduate students from CHSTM and elsewhere who may be presenting for the first time, and also helps members of the CHSTM community to keep up to date with each other’s research.

The lunchtime seminar series runs throughout the academic year every alternate Tuesday, 1-2pm. Currently all seminars are held remotely, via Zoom. Each semester’s lunchtime seminar series is organised by postgraduates within the Centre. The current organiser is Alice Naisbitt.
