Welcome to the collaborative course blog for Literature and Science from the Romantics to the Present (a Fall 2013 course taught by John Savarese, in the English Department at Berkeley). Now that the term is over, this site serves primarily as an archive of the thinking, writing, and conversations that came out of our class meetings, which we hope readers will find useful going forward.
Most of the posts below were written by students in the course, and reflect individual student views rather than those of the instructor or of the institution. Posts range from close readings of course texts to reviews of web resources, recently-released films, and scholarly articles on the subject of the relation of literature and science. Please feel free to take a look through the site–you can scroll down to see the most recent posts, or use the right-hand toolbar to navigate the site by author or keyword. If you’re interested in contacting the instructor, I’d love to hear from you, and can be reached here.
