Meeting time: Fridays 1:30–3:00 pm
Meeting place: 140 Nolte Center. **Note new location**

The physics interest group (PIG) reads and discusses works of mutual interest in the history and philosophy of physics. We select readings for a variety of reasons: to keep up on the most exciting developments in the field, to help participants scrutinize literature relevant to their research projects (faculty or graduate student research), to provide feedback on works in progress being written by participants (graduate students, faculty, and Center visitors), to revisit classic articles in the literature, and sometimes just to have fun discussing a topic related to physics. For more information please contact Jos Uffink or Clayton Gearhart. If you wold like to be added to the PIG email list please send a request to
