FMS II: Varieties of Science Narrative

Volkswagen Foundation funds new projects for Fiction Meets Science! DOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS AVAILABLE!

The new projects will focus on narratives that explore and reflect the global dimensions and diverse regional contexts of science. Here we also expand our purview beyond literary fiction to take a comparative look at science narratives in a variety of media and forms of fiction and non-fiction, such as feature film and TV series, theater, documentary and print journalism.
