The Lyceum Society of the New York Academy of Sciences
Established in 1993, The Lyceum Society is comprised of the Academy’s retired and semi-retired Members. These Members are from diverse backgrounds, have different areas of scientific interest and expertise, and have practiced many professions. Their disciplines include Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Chemical and Physical Sciences, Mathematics and Information Sciences, Social Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, Dentistry, and many others.
The Society hosts convivial monthly meetings at the Academy. These meetings feature lectures and discussions with scientists from around the world, and also provide participating Members with the opportunity to give self-directed presentations and seminars based on their own specialties or new research interests. Academy Members affiliated with the Society also engage in self-organized social events and celebrations.
Past programs have included discussion on topics as diverse as climate change, the history of microscopy, earth’s magnetism and more. Events are organized by volunteer President Joel J. Kirman and volunteer Vice Presidents Ralph S. Kaslick and Joy C. Zagoren. Academy Members and those in the broader scientific community who are interested in learning more about Lyceum Society events may contact Ralph S. Kaslick at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
