Science and Literature, Congress of the Association for Italian Studies
The Association for Italian Studies ADI organizes an annual meeting, whose theme for this year was Science and Literature. Sara and other students submitted a panel proposal that got accepted: the topic was how to rethink science communication. Sara played the role of coordinator of the panel. Here (in Italian) is a nice summary of the work!
As last year, Sara took part to the organization of Festivaletteratura in Mantua, Italy (4-8 September 2019). She was involved, together with other scientists, in the activities of Scienceground, the section of the Festival devoted to discussing the impact of science on society.
Reading groups, 'blackboard' events, podcast records, and children laboratories were set up. A nice article from researcher Lynn Chiu, invited to Mantua to discuss microbiota, immune system and biological identity, is available here, check it out!
