This academic year (2008-09) will be a quiet one for the McGill HPS series, because many of the organizing faculty members are on leave. However, HPS-related activities are still going on, including the Mossman Lecture in the History of Science (Emily Thompson on October 28th), and a visit with two talks by Rivka Feldhay. Details below. The series will return to normal service in the fall of 2009.

Cette année 2008-9, notre série sera relativement calme, à cause de l’absence de plusieurs parmi nous. Cependant, on aura les conférences publiques d’Emily Thompson (le 28 octobre) et de Rivka Feldhay (le 18 et le 25 septembre). Détails en bas. La série reprendra son rythme habituel en automne 2009.
