About the Colloquium

The Southern California Colloquium in the History of Science, Medicine and Technology is based within the History Department at UCLA and chaired by various members of its faculty. Its goal is to provide a quarterly, one-day event for graduate students and faculty in the region where new and cutting-edge approaches are discussed.

There is no fee for attending this Colloquium, but reservations are required for the lecture program. As in years past, lunch will be provided for all registered participants.
