Dirac Lectures

The Dirac Lectures is an initiative of Florida State University to celebrate the memory of Paul Dirac, late FSU Physics faculty member, Nobel prize winner, and namesake of the Dirac Science Library. These lectures bring outstanding speakers to FSU to present physics topics of particular interest and notability.

 

2023 Dirac Lecture Series on Effective Field Theories

The 2023 Dirac Lecture series is dedicated to the subject of Effective Field Theories and the impact it is having on a variety of fields like nuclear and particle physics, flavor physics, and gravity. The lectures will be held in person at the Department of Physics at Florida State University, during February 15-17, 2023.
