Annual Symposium

Each year, the Life Sciences & Society Program organizes a symposium that explores a juncture between the life sciences and culture which is of pressing significance and interest to a variety of disciplines and to the public.

With the 5th Annual Symposium in 2009, we began a multiyear series under the heading Beyond Disciplinarity. Each symposium in the series promotes an emerging field of interdisciplinary or postdisciplinary research.
