Brown Bag Lectures (BBLs)
Brown Bag Lectures (BBLs) are a series of weekly, informal talks on the history of chemistry or related subjects, including the history and social studies of science, technology, and medicine. Based on original research (sometimes still in progress), these talks are given by local scholars for an audience of CHF staff and fellows and interested members of the public.
All BBLs begin promptly at noon on the second or sixth floor of CHF. Visitors should check at the front desk for the lecture's location. Latecomers will not be admitted.
The Brown Bag Lecture Series is a project of the Beckman Center for the History of Chemistry and the Othmer Library of Chemical History.
