Royal Society: One Culture

To celebrate their library’s 350th anniversary The Royal Society has announced the One Culture festival will be taking place later this year.  Scientists. writers and historians will be coming together in a series of events on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd October to explore the relationship between science and culture.

There are a few of the sessions which have caught my eye including:

  • “Sam & I”, a one-woman performance by Take the Space Theatre Company which looks at the world of Samuel Pepys through the thoughts of his wife Elizabeth
  • a conversation about science, writing and psychology with Sebastain Faulks and
  • Ian Thomson exploring how science influence Primo Levi during his incarceration at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

More details can be found on the Royal Society’s website.
