ISG Workshops

ISG now presents quarterly workshops curated by the Institute’s faculty which are free and open to the public.  In 2014/15, our workshops included Bio Data (Friday, January 30, 2015Our Chemical Nature: from Molecules to Policy (Friday, February 21, 2014); and How To Do Things With Labels — Labels, Food Systems and Information Infrastructures (Friday, May 16, 2014).

From 2003-2012, ISG organized and presented annual interdisciplinary two-day public symposiums that typically attracted 250-400 people.  The first day consisted of several lectures from noted academics and professionals, usually delivered in the evening. The second day typically featured demonstrations, booths, films, and other attractions, as well as additional lectures.

Previous symposia have featured the following topics: The Storefront Genome: A Citizen’s Guide to the Genetic Bazaar (2003); Nurturing Our Nature: Genomics, Diet, and Nutrition (2004); Gender and Genomics: Sex, Science, and Society (2005); Stem Cells: Promise and Peril in Regenerative Medicine (2006); The Genetic Marketplace (2007); Babies by Design: Redefining Humans?
