(Online) Seminar series on Indian scientists: Nov 21st: 3 - 5 PM@IITGN

We are glad to announce the second edition of the event: Seminar series on Indian scientists.

In the first half of the 20th century, there was a great renaissance of modern scientific thinking in India starting from the pioneering works by J. C Bose. The pioneers of modern Indian Science & Mathematics from this era contributed significantly to contemporary scientific understanding. At the same time, they motivated and led the national movement to create scientific institutions in India.

The “Seminar series on Indian scientists” aims to honour the contributions of these towering figures of Indian Science & Mathematics.

In this second edition, on Saturday 21st November 2020, there will be two ONLINE seminars on the life and works of Harish-Chandra and CV Raman. The speakers are

1. November 21st, 2020: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Both the talks may cover a few technical aspects, they will also deal with the historical and social contexts in which those pioneers worked. As such, they should appeal to faculty and students across a wide range of disciplines.
