Leave a comment

A new forum for Oxford postgrads and postdocs working in literature and science is launching in Trinity term, 2014.

The Literature and Science Early Career Researchers’ Forum aims to bring together D.Phil students and postdoctorate researchers working in the interdisciplinary field of literature and science. The forum will act as both a reading group and research seminar in which researchers near the beginning of their careers will be able to present and develop their work. The forum welcomes researchers in literatures of all kinds from ancient to modern, and in the history of medicine as well as science. Historians and philosophers of science and medicine are also welcome. Up-to-date information on the group will be posted regularly on the Oxford Literature and Science Network website lit-sci-ox.org. Information can also be obtained by emailing litsciox@gmail.com.

The forum will meet around three times each term, on Friday afternoons, 16.45-18.45, starting in Trinity 2014. The Trinity meetings will be at the following times and locations:

9th of May, 2014, Colin Matthew Room, Radcliffe Humanities Building
30th of May, 2014, Seminar Room, Radcliffe Humanities Building
20th of June, 2014, Colin Matthew Room, Radcliffe Humanities Building

The first meeting on the 9th of May will involve a discussion of Bruno Latour’s ‘An Attempt at a “Compositionist Manifesto”’ (2010). Attendees should email litsciox@gmail.com to request a copy of the text.

The forum organizers are:
