Interdisciplinary Research into the Humanities and Science

The University of Reading has launched a new research initiative on Interdisciplinary Research into the Humanities and Science. To launch this theme, we will be holding a public roundtable discussion of Science and Storytelling at the University of Reading’s London Road campus on Wednesday 6 November at 6.30 p.m., preceded by a wine reception from 5.30 at the Museum of English Rural Life. The speakers will included Druin Burch, Sally Shuttleworth, Rebecca Stott and Tim Wheeler.

To read more about the event and the research theme itself, please visit our website, which includes a list of researchers at the University currently working at the interface of science and the humanities, with links to their own webpages.

If you are interested in finding out more about the work we are doing, please email one or both of the co-directors, John Holmes ( and Andrew Mangham (
