Centre for the Rise of Science and Fiction

About the centre

The Centre for the Rise of Science and Fiction investigates the relationship between science and fiction particularly in the early modern period and the Enlightenment (1600-1800), but it is also interested in the relationship between science and fiction in a broader perspective. The point of departure for the centre is the hypothesis that science and fiction supported each other's emergence in and around the age of Enlightenment and that there is still an often overlooked connection between fictionality and science.
