Summary

18 June⎪5pm⎪Long room⎪Free admission

Part of a series of talks accompanying our Germans in Britain exhibition run at Murray Edwards College Cambridge.

This talk sets out to explore how ‘Germans in Britain’ influenced the ‘two culture’ controversy, particularly in literary texts. It looks at mutual exchanges between literature and science in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by showing both parallels and distinctions between scientific and literary cultures in Britain and Germany.
