An interdisciplinary seminar series taking place every Tuesday for 4 weeks after reading week. Bringing together scholars from across UCL who have an interest in the COSMOS and cosmology to discuss the different ways in which they engage with its wonders. How far might different approaches to cosmology provide the scope for a genuine cross-disciplinary conversation? How does the scientific study of the cosmos relate to the ways in which its wonders have been engaged in other fields, across history and in different cultural settings? How far might a shared interest in cosmology and questions of ultimate horizons cast in a new light age-old debates about the relationship between science, religion and art? And how far might it serve to re-cast or even re-negotiate the boundaries between the proverbial ‘two cultures’ of the sciences and the humanities?
