The Joint Atlantic Seminar series offers the opportunity for graduate students in the history of the life sciences to present their work to a well-informed audience in an informal and encouraging setting.  JAS-Bio has fostered a long tradition of collegiality amongst historians of biology along the eastern seaboard including the north-eastern United States and south-eastern Canada.  It is one of the nicest ways to present an early career paper and meet other participants in the field.

There will be a guest lecture/event on Friday evening and electronic coffee breaks to continue the seminar’s tradition of sociability
