The Consortium invites area scholars to join several topical working groups for challenging and collegial discussion of interesting publications in their fields and of each others’ works-in-progress. Please contact the conveners if you would like to participate in one or more of the groups.
Each of the groups meets one evening or afternoon each month at the Consortium offices in Philadelphia. Scholars located anywhere can also participate online. The regular meeting days are as follows, but be sure to check each group's individual schedule for changes.
|1st||History & Theory||Physical Sciences||Biological Sciences||Earth & Environmental Sciences|
|2nd||History & Philosophy of Science||Early Science||Science Beyond the West|
|3rd||Technology||Human Sciences||Medicine and Health|
