Roundtable on Science and Storytelling (University of Reading, 6 November 2013)

A public roundtable on Science and Storytelling will be held at the University of Reading to launch a new University-wide 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, 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 is free and all are welcome.
