Science and Storytelling Round Table Event
November 6, 2013 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The University of Reading will be holding a public roundtable event on Science and Storytelling to launch a new research theme on Interdisciplinary Research into the Humanities and Science.
Climate change expert Professor Tim Wheeler and Dickens expert Dr Andrew Mangham from Reading will be joined by the novelist and biographer Rebecca Stott from the University of East Anglia, the doctor and medical journalist Druin Burch, and Sally Shuttleworth, Professor of English Literature at St Anne’s College, University of Oxford, for an interdisciplinary discussion of how science shapes narrative and how narratives shape what people think about science.
The roundtable will be held at the University’s London Road campus (LO22, Lecture Room GO1) on Wednesday 6th November at 6.30 p.m., preceded by a wine reception at 5.30 at the Museum of English Rural Life. The event will be free of charge and everyone is welcome.
