You can catch me discussing “What Scientists Read” at the forthcoming Edinburgh International Science Festival at 5.30pm on Thursday 17th April. Here’s the blurb: What DO scientists read? And what role does literature play in contemporary scientific thought and practice? Drawing on results from the ongoing What Scientists Read project, acclaimed author Alastair Reynolds and BBC New Generation Thinker Dr Sarah Dillon will be joined by two of the project’s interviewees to discuss scientists’ reading habits. Submit your ‘bookshelfies’ in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org and join the discussion!”
The event takes place at the Summerhall and lasts for ninety minutes. It’s a ticketed event. You can find a bit more information at the festival website: http://www.sciencefestival.co.uk/whats-on/categories/talk/what-scientists-read
I look forward to seeing some of you there.
