The Stanford Historical Society sponsors public presentations and events throughout the academic year. Past programs address important topics including Stanford’s relationship with the Silicon Valley, the Stanford peace movement, the Stanford Prison Experiment, the land use and social history of the Searsville area, and the history of women at Stanford. Many of the Society's past programs are now available on the SHS YouTube Channel, the Stanford Historical Society Collections in the University Archives, and Apple podcasts. Program recordings will be made available continuously.

Our programs are mainly funded by membership dues. As you enjoy the recordings, we hope you would consider becoming a member or making a donation to support our programming.
