The Centre for the Study of Science and Imagination (SCIMAG) was founded in 2013 to provide a focal point and organising body for the range of work being undertaken on the relations between the humanities and the sciences at the University of Westminster and at other institutions across London.
The Centre’s key aim is to investigate the many ways in which the sciences, the humanities and the arts not only intersect but also are deeply bound together by common goals and understandings both historically and in the present.
SCIMAG members are drawn from a variety of disciplines: art, cultural studies, history, literary studies, philosophy, and sociology. Their work is focused on the intersections between literature and science; science and art; the display, dissemination and representation of science; science in culture; the social history of science and medicine; and science communication.
SCIMAG is also home to the internationally-recognised Journal of Literature and Science.
