Inaugurated in the spring of 2021, NYU Space Talks is a lecture series convened by Alexander C. T. Geppert at NYU's Center for European and Mediterranean Studies and NYU Shanghai with the Department of History in New York City. Each semester, established and upcoming scholars will present the latest research on the history and politics of outer space, extraterrestrial life and astroculture, both in Europe and around the globe.
