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 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.

The spring 2020 Shulman Lectures have been organized in conjunction with the Yale College seminar “Critical Theories of Science and Religion” taught by Noreen Khawaja and Joanna Radin
