A Convergence of the Two Cultures

11/02/2007

Just discovered an interesting site: the web pages of LUPAS, the Liverpool University Centre for Poetry and Science. I haven’t explored the site in depth yet, but it looks interesting, especially the diaries section, a communal blog of sorts involving poets and scientists. I’ve had a brief scan of the essays section, but the text size is ridiculously small and uncomfortable to read.

Whatever, it’s a bold and necessary venture. There’s an enormous gulf between poetry and science, something that was touched upon on Wednesday in the question and answer session that followed the reading, which I intend to write a wee bit about. I sometimes wish I was more able to bridge it and I admire those who manage to do so.
