“The Power of Story – how to turn good science into good yarns”
“Humans are creatures of story. We see and understand the world through narratives that help give meaning to the events taking place around us. Everyone loves a good yarn. But nature – and science – doesn’t always work like that. It can be messy and complicated, without heroes or villains, with no plot-twists and turns, no beginning or end. So, how do scientists tell the stories of their research? And why does it even matter?”
