Science and Storytelling Roundtable

charcotWe are launching our new research theme with a public roundtable discussion of Science and Storytelling at the University of Reading’s London Road campus (LO22, Lecture Room G01) on Wednesday 6 November at 6.30 p.m., preceded by a wine reception from 5.30 at the Museum of English Rural Life.

The speakers are the hospital doctor, medical journalist and science-writer Druin Burch; Sally Shuttleworth, authority on psychology, science and fiction in Victorian England, and Professor of English Literature at St Anne’s College, Oxford; the biographer, novelist and historian of evolution Rebecca Stott, Professor of Literature and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia; and the climate change expert and advisor to the Department for International Development Tim Wheeler, Professor of Crop Science here at Reading.

Entry to the reception and the roundtable is free. We hope you will be able to join us to hear our speakers’ thoughts on the importance of storytelling and narrative in science, and vice versa, and to join in what promises to be a very lively and stimulating discussion.
