Crastina – the new wave of communicators of science
February 2017: “Poetry month”
xYz: “Scientists and artists need only four tools—a pencil, some paper, a waste-bin—and their imagination. ”
A Crastina Column by British biologist and poet Joanna Tilsley (nom de plume xYz), founder of Quantum Press.
Science, poetry, and science poetry
Please note the Oxford comma in the title above. This month we will not only explore the intersection between science and poetry, but we will also try to understand if there is such a genre as science poetry. If so: what does it stand for and how do we define it? A clue is given to us by our column writer, xYz.
The Crastina Crew will offer you blog posts, interviews and links – including everything from the silliest rhymes by anonymous lab rats to works by poetic giants as Poe (who had some nasty things to say about science).
Scientists and poets are often described as being very far apart in their worldview. We are trying to prove that they have very much in common. The ability to observe is one thing. A sense of wonder another one. I am sure that you, dear reader, can come up with more.
For The Crastina Crew,
Current stuff from the intersection where science and communication meet – news, announcements and invitations.
Meet the trailblazers and ”the crazy ones” who change the way science and tech is communicated.
People thinking outside the conventions of science and science dissemination, inspiring us to do likewise.
Practical communication stuff, primarily aimed at early career scientists and young scicommers.
Guest posts from good friends in the Crastina network. Please make sure to check out their activities.
