I’ll be on a panel at the Cambridge Science Festival this Thursday:
Science as the Spark – literature inspired by science
How has scientific inquiry lead to literary works? Why is the literary presentation of science relevant to scientists and to society?
This panel, chaired by Dr John Holmes, will skirt the cliches to ask illuminating questions, investigating why a number of talented scientists, historians and artists structure their work at the intersection of these worlds.
