Every year Science in Human Culture sponsors the Klopsteg lecture series, bringing 10 to 15 scholars to campus whose research deepens public understanding of science and generates robust exchanges across disciplinary and departmental lines. SHC also coordinates a doctoral colloquium that meets three to four times each term, allowing its graduate affiliates a chance to share work and ideas with their peers and faculty. In 2012 and 2015, SHC sponsored ground-breaking conferences for scholars working on science studies in Midwestern universities and colleges.
