Shulman Lectures in Science and the Humanities

The annual Shulman Lecture Series provides up to four visiting lectures a year to be organized in conjunction with an undergraduate seminar course taught on a topic bridging science and the humanities. 

The Shulman Lectures are presented under the auspices of the Franke Program in Science and the Humanities, which is made possible by the generosity of Richard and Barbara Franke. The series is named after Robert Shulman, Sterling Professor Emeritus of Chemistry, Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry, and senior research scientist in diagnostic radiology, in recognition of his roles as a Founding Fellow of the Whitney and as an unwavering supporter of the integration of science and the humanities.
