Mission

"To cultivate every art and science which may tend to advance the interest and happiness of a free and virtuous people..." The Connecticut Academy of the Arts and Sciences chartered in 1799 is the third-oldest learned society in the United States. Its purpose is the dissemination of scholarly information. For the past 216 years, the Academy has fulfilled this mission through lectures and extensive publications.
The Academy sponsors eight monthly presentations during the academic year (September-May). These provide an opportunity for both the lay person and scholar to hear distinguished speakers discuss current work in the sciences, arts, and humanities. All lectures are free and open to the public and are announced in university calendars, local newspapers, and by direct mail to Academy members.

Scholarly Activities

The Academy sponsors eight monthly presentations during the academic year (September-May). These provide an opportunity for both the lay person and scholar to hear distinguished speakers discuss current work in the sciences, arts, and humanities. All lectures are free and open to the public and are announced in university calendars, local newspapers, and by direct mail to Academy members. They are hosted by Yale University and Wesleyan University in Middletown.

In 1810, the Academy commenced its extensive publication work. Covering diverse disciplines in the sciences and humanities, these are divided into three series: Memoirs, monographs or booklength publications; Transactions, essays in history, economics, mathematics, archeology, languages, literature, and the natural sciences, and most recently, interdisciplinary articles; and A Manual of the Writings in Middle English, the definitive reference source in this field.
