Wunderkammer is a discussion group for all staff and research postgraduates interested in the history of science, medicine, technology and environment.

Wunderkammer meets fortnightly to discuss research papers, book chapters and works in progress. Postgraduates are strongly encouraged to nominate papers for discussion. It could be a classic that they have never had the chance to discuss; or something related to their own field; or something that has simply got under their skin for some reason.

There is also a dedicated slot for everyone to discuss their ongoing research in an informal and collaborative setting.

Everyone is welcome; you don’t have to attend every time or be a card-carrying historian of science. You can nominate a paper or come along if you want to get to grips with just a little bit of history of science in the course of your research.

Wunderkammer takes place on Tuesdays in alternate weeks, at 17.30 in the Unicorn Inn, Canterbury. Details of our programmes are posted on the Science Comma blog.

For more information please contact Dr Rebekah Higgitt or Dr Charlotte Sleigh.
