The Science and Humanities Reading Group is having its first meeting of the spring semester this week. The meeting will take place March 15, at 7 p.m. in the Whitney Humanities Center (53 Wall Street), Room 208. As always, food and refreshments will be provided.
At our meeting, we will hear from Andrew Miranker, Professor in the Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry. In the fall, Professor Miranker taught the class “Pigments and Pipettes: Art and Biomolecular Recognition”, at Yale’s West Campus. The class, which was featured on the Yale West Campus website, taught students about how the biological sciences can be applied in the field of art conservation. Professor Miranker will tell us about his experiences in bringing such an interdisciplinary class to life.
If you are interested in teaching interdisciplinary subject matter, don’t miss this meeting! Spend one evening of spring break having a thought-provoking discussion about interdisciplinary teaching at the intersection between the sciences and the arts.
