‘Science as the Spark’ at Cambridge Science Festival

Join us at the Cambridge Science Festival on Thursday, 20 March for a lively panel discussion with authors whose work involves equal portions of art and science.

How has scientific inquiry lead to literary works? Why is the literary presentation of science relevant to scientists and society?

A panel including Chris Beckett, Dave Clements, Laura Dietz, and Kelley Swain will skirt the ‘inspiring science!’ cliche to ask illuminating questions, including why scientists and historians who can communicate in any genre, and artists who can draw on any inspiration, choose to structure their work at the intersection of these fields.

The panel will be led by Dr. John Holmes, Chair of the British Society for Literature and Science.

The organisers thank the British Society for Literature and Science for its generous grant in support of the event.
