STS seminars

This page provides information about seminar series and one-off lectures sponsored or co-sponsored by STS. Most are open to scholars from any academic field. These normally are research intensive, specialised events, normally of interest only to scholars in the discipline.

STS research seminars

Upcoming talks in the STS research seminar series are listed in the STS calendar (link).

Seminar series covering all aspects of research in the discipline.

The purpose of this series is to provide colleagues with an opportunity to present their latest research results and discuss them within a collegial atmosphere. These are open to all interested parties; however, do keep in mind these are specialised professional presentations and can be quite technical.

STS Haldane lectures series

STS launched the Haldane Lectures in 2014 in honour of UCL Professor JBS Haldane, a polymath not only in the life sciences but also in science communication and science policy. We aim to hold two STS Haldane Lectures each year, one in History and Philosophy of Science; another, in Science and Society.

London PUS seminar series

Upcoming talks in the PUS seminar series are listed in the STS calendar (link).

The London PUS (Public Understanding of Science) seminar series has been running since 1991. It provides an academic space in which to discuss the many aspects of science in public from multiple perspectives in a relaxed but rigorous environment.
