Videos of presentations from ‘Narrative Science in Techno-Environments’ workshop now available

It is a great pleasure to share that videos of the presentations given at the ‘Narrative Science in Techno-Environments’ workshop are now available online via the Narrative Science project website.

This workshop was made possible thanks to the generous support of a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award (grant number BARSEA19\190021). It expanded on the work of the Narrative Science project, a European Research Council funded project based at the London School of Economics (grant agreement No. 694732). It was organised in collaboration with both the British Society for the History of Science and the British Society for Literature and Science.

The scholarly network which this workshop established can be found here.

A list of the videos now available is provided below.

Many thanks, and happy viewing!
