Poetry and Geology
Viewing science through poetry can be both illuminating and informative. iCRAG has collaborated with poet Prof. Iggy McGovern and Prof. Micheal Stephenson of the British Geological Survey to run a number of events exploring earth science through the poetry of Seamus Heaney and Ted Hughes. Situated on the outskirts of Dingle, and overlooking the sea and hills, the event was a both a tribute to two poets of the land and a clarion call for increased overlap between poetry and the sciences.
