“Science and Literature are not two things, but two sides of one thing.”

Thomas Huxley

Bridges between Fictional Narratives and Science in the 21st Century  (BFS21) is an investigation project founded in January 2020 intertwining Cetaps’s Research Strand A – Science and Culture and Research Strand B- Literature and the Media .

The purpose of this project is to list and analyze all Anglo-Saxon fictional narratives – starting from the year 2000 – that somehow establish a bridge between literature and science in the anglophone world.

The differentiating factor of this project is to offer scholars and researchers an insight into the way Literature portrays Science in the 21st century, presenting a new generation of writers that offer a fresh perspective over the multiple relationships established between fictional narratives and science.
