Journal of literature and Science

The Journal of Literature and Science is a peer-reviewed academic journal, published twice annually in Summer and Winter. The JLS was founded in 2007, and produced its first issue at the beginning of 2008. It was originally hosted by the University of Glamorgan’s Research Centre for Literature, Arts and Science (2007-12), before moving to its own independent online site in March 2013, with the support of the University of Westminster. The journal’s first, and present, editor is Professor Martin Willis, Professor of English at Cardiff University. The Advisory Board includes leading scholars of literature and science from around the world. The JLS is published in digital format, is entirely open access, and requires no subscription fee.

The JLS is dedicated to the publication of academic essays on the subject of literature and science, broadly defined. Essays on the major forms of literary and artistic endeavour are welcome (the novel, short fiction, poetry, drama, periodical literature, visual art, sculpture, radio, film and television). The journal encourages submissions from all periods of literary and artistic history since the Scientific Revolution; from the Renaissance to the present day. The journal also encourages a broad definition of ‘science’: encapsulating both the history and philosophy of science and those sciences regarded as either mainstream or marginal within their own, or our, historical moment. However, the journal does not generally publish work on the social sciences. Within these confines, essays submitted to the journal may focus on the literary and scientific productions of any nation or group.

Elinas

Can physics be poetized? Is there a rhetoric of physics? Physics and literature represent two diametrically opposed ways of viewing the world. In combination they could develop a productive potential. At present however, no institutionalised dialogue exists.

The interdisciplinary research-centre ELINAS aims at creating an institutionalised infrastructure for research, dedicated to the reciprocal transfer of knowledge between physics and literature. The center is concerned with the importance of language and metaphors in physical research as well as with discursive and narrative modulations of scientific theories in literary texts.

University of Reading Centre for Interdisciplinary Research into the Humanities and Science (IRHS)

The study of the many ways in which the arts and humanities intersect with science is a growing part of research within the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Science and across the University. The sciences and the arts and humanities are often seen as separate from one another, yet ever since they began to be defined in this way in the seventeenth century, they have looked to each other for elucidation and inspiration. They share a common interest in the most fundamental questions relating to the human condition: what do we know, how can we know it, and what is at stake if and when we ask?

Our work on this theme here at Reading is driven by a fundamental belief that scientists, artists and humanities scholars share an interest in the cross-fertilization of ideas and that our collective understanding will be advanced the more we work together from our different disciplinary perspectives. At the same time, our interdisciplinary field touches upon some of the most important subjects in intellectual enquiry today, from medical ethics and food security to climate change and the place of religion in society.

By bringing together historians, literary scholars and political scientists on the one hand and biologists, meteorologists and cyberneticists on the other, we aim to break new ground in understanding the place of science in culture and society, the interaction of the sciences and the arts, and the ways in which interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research can help us to tackle the most pressing social and political issues of the modern world. Working closely with leading scientific societies and museums, we aim to disseminate the benefits and results of this work across the academic community and to the public at large.

LISAA

Le centre de recherche Littératures, Savoirs et Arts (LISAA) a été créé en 2004-2005 par les chercheurs de plusieurs équipes : Littératures et savoirs des formes (LITTEFORMES EA 3349), le groupe hispaniste de l’équipe Passeurs culturels (EA 3347), et des chercheurs spécialistes d’arts et technologies. Il a été contractualisé par le Ministère comme Équipe d’Accueil (EA 4120).

Son objectif est d’étudier les relations de la littérature ou de l’art avec les savoirs liés aux sciences exactes et aux sciences humaines, la production des œuvres et l’influence des mutations techniques dans le domaine de la création, le lien entre les transformations scientifiques et les révolutions esthétiques ou les pratiques d’écriture (littéraire, picturale, musicale, cinématographique). Les orientations scientifiques du LISAA se déclinent sous les quatre axes suivants :

1) Innovation et création

2) Savoirs techniques, sciences de la nature et de la vie

3) Voir et savoir

4) Textes, discours et représentations




Research Centre for Literature, Arts and Science

The Research Centre was formally opened in Autumn 2006 with support from the University, the Division of English and the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW).

The website was created in February 2007 to offer all researchers, lecturers, and postgraduates interested in the interdisciplinary study of literature, arts and science a single online source for scholarship, information, events, and contacts.

RCLAS is also host to the Journal of Literature and Science – which can be accessed directly from the button on the left hand margin. The JLS is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the publication of interdisciplinary scholarship on literature and science across all historical periods.

RCLAS’s key event in the academic year 2011-12 was its Conference Medicine at the Margins

La vie des idées

Coopérative intellectuelle, lieu de débat et atelier du savoir, La Vie des Idées veut être un réseau de compétences qui dépasse les frontières géographiques et croise les champs disciplinaires, tout en cherchant à rester accessible au plus grand nombre. La consultation du site et l’abonnement aux lettres d’information sont entièrement gratuits.

Sa vocation est de proposer une information de qualité sur la vie intellectuelle et l’actualité éditoriale, tant française qu’internationale, ainsi que des contributions sur les grands enjeux de notre temps, sous la forme d’essais approfondis, d’interviews et de discussions publiques.

La Vie des Idées entend offrir à tous les champs du savoir (aux sciences humaines, mais aussi aux sciences exactes, à l’esthétique, à la critique littéraire, à l’architecture etc.) une large diffusion qui utilise toutes les ressources d’Internet. Elle veut ainsi contribuer à la circulation des connaissances et des études au-delà de leur sphère de production afin de décloisonner les disciplines.

Fiction meets science

Fiction Meets Science (FMS) is an academic research program made up of literary and sociological studies; residencies for fiction writers; book clubs; and public readings and interchanges between humanities, arts, and science communities. We are based in northwestern Germany, but our scholars, writers, and scientists come from around the world.

In recent decades, fiction writers have been creating new kinds of stories about science. They are exploring its practices, concepts, people, institutions, products and societal fall-out. What are the literary and social implications of this trend? What does contemporary fiction have to say about the human dimensions of science? Are its practitioners villains or heroes, drones or creative individuals, recluses or team players—stereotypes or multidimensional characters? Is this new wave of thinking about science in fiction leading to new literary forms? What is its role in science communication? Can a novel, film, or play make science more approachable, or inspire curiosity about scientific concepts?




Whonamedit.com

Whonamedit.com is a biographical dictionary of medical eponyms. It is our ambition to present a complete survey of all medical phenomena named for a person, with a biography of that person. Eventually, this will include more than 15.000 eponyms and more than 6.000 persons.

Research group Literature and Science

The research group Literature and Science consists of scholars working with issues pertaining to the interfaces between literature and the exact sciences, and seeks in this way to overcome the traditional barriers between « The Two Cultures ». The Bergen group’s activities and publications have mostly revolved around the historical interaction between literature and the hard sciences, for instance in relation to shifting conceptions of the human. More recently, the group’s focus has been on representations of human ageing in literature, cultural history, medicine and psychiatry. We are currently in the process of developing an international, interdisciplinary network related to the research project « Ageing: Histories, Mythologies, Taboos ».
