Chemistry and Physics Seminar
Since the Spring semester of 2002, the Department of Chemistry
has supported a very successful series of seminars, meeting the
needs of students and faculty, both at Southeastern and other
Universities. Faculty and students of Southeastern, from
Chemistry and Physics as well as other departments, make use of the
series to keep other faculty and students apprised of their
activities. Speakers from other Universities and businesses
have used the seminar series as a forum in which to inform
Southeastern students of post-graduate opportunities, whether in
graduate school or in industry. Further, these seminars have
served as a catalyst for collaborative research projects between
Southeastern faculty and faculty at other Universities. And
by acting as a catalyst for 'speaker exchanges', our seminar series
has promoted interactions as Southeastern faculty present their
work to the faculty of other Universities.
While it focuses upon opportunities in physics and chemistry, speakers have also presented discussions of, for example: the work of chemists in the wake of 9/11, forensic medicine, the Creationism/evolution debate and the philosophical concept of emergent properties.
The department's seminars are held from 2:00 to 2:50 on most Fridays during regular semesters, in Pursley Hall Room 211. They are open to all who are interested.
