history lessons

There is an interesting seminar series on the history of chemistry here, which appears to be underappreciated. It is organised by 4 institutions (both universities, Maison Francaise, and a Society for the history of chemistry and alchemy) and the two events I went to were attended by less then a dozen people.

Some German universities have a tradition of "Studium Generale" where interdisciplinary lecture series that may be of interest to lay people in other departments or indeed from the general public are advertised separately from the general teaching programme and are promoted with things like leaflets in bookshops etc. I think this kind of support might be warranted here as well ...
