Durham Book Festival Event - Debate: Is great science great fiction?
From God particles to embryonic stem-cell research, our scientific discoveries are saturated with wonder and the downright weird. But do we create scientific facts or do scientists simply discover what’s already there? Join Professor Tom McLeish (molecular physicist), Professor Patricia Waugh (English studies), Ken MacLeod (science fiction writer) and former IAS Fellow Dr Andrew Crumey (novelist and former physicist) for this book festival curtain raiser.
This event is part of a collaboration between the Durham Book Festival and the Hearing the Voice project with support from the IAS.
The event is free to attend and open to all however tickets are required: available from www.durhambookfestival.com
