The Literature and Science session of the RMMLA invites interpretive
papers focusing on science and its intersection with written
methods of transmission. They might include the reuse of
scientific matter in literary forms; the relationship of
individual writers to science and of certain scientists to
literary figures of their day; the combination of scientific
and literary methods of knowledge making. Papers focusing on
the representation or integration of science in specific
literary texts are especially encouraged. However, proposals
dealing with any aspect of the interdisciplinary field of
literature and science are welcome.
