CERN #12 Writing workshop

As I said in the post #9, I am planning to do a writing workshop here at CERN. I don’t know yet how long it will take, or how many times I’ll do it, but I am working on his conception.

So to begin, I am studying the different types of texts produced around physics, in a wide perspective for the moment : grey literature, physicists’ blogs, poetry + physics, equations, etc. I am also looking for science-fiction inspired more by nuclear physics than by astronomy.

I am also looking for a theorist who can explain a little about relativity, time, etc, to me. I am very interested in understanding this conception of time because it is very different from the linearity of usual storytelling. How this structure can be adapted to a story?

Some roughs time’s structures’ schemas in stories
