Biology and Culture

BSLS members may be interested to read about the Biology and Culture meeting organised by Angelique Richardson and held at the University of Exeter in September 2011.  The workshop was part of a larger British Academy-funded project on Science and Culture.   One outcome  is a special issue of Critical Quarterly on 'Essentialism in Science and Culture': this includes essays by Angelique Richardson, Christopher Gill, Will Abberley, Staffan Muller-Wille, Ann Heilmann and Barry Barnes, and is available here.

BSLS members might be interested in the Celebrating Science blogspot on the creative links between literature and science (see in Links too).
