Arts-Science Encounters series

Want to know more about nanotechnology and postmodern culture? Well the next event in the series of art-science encounters is focusing on just that. The aim of these 'encounters' is to create an environment which stimulates discussion - conversation, comparison and debate - about the ways we 'choose to pursue knowledge' in difference fields.

On June 9th Professor Richard Jones and Professor Andy Miah (University of the West of Scotland) will be looking ahead to the future, from their contrasting vantage-points in physics and ethics research, to question 'what kind of future is nanotechnology creating for us?' And, 'what will it mean to be human in the twenty-first century?'

If interested you can register your attendance online. All events (unless otherwise stated) are held on Tuesdays from 5.30pm to 7.00pm in the Douglas Knoop Centre of the Humanities Research Institute, 34 Gell Street.
