Love Is Not Just Chemistry

Although I am not an active member of the scientific community anymore, I do stand — as a trained physicist and as a simple citizen — with scientists facing attacks from ultra conservative administrations and all kinds of obscurantist forces.

This is why I haven’t drawn this heart full of physics, chemistry, biology and other natural sciences : because I am convinced that giving the humanities extra support is more important now than ever.

Whether they like it or not, the problems that scientists are facing under administrations like Trump’s or with climate change skeptics are not scientific, they are political. In other words, scientists need tools to be able to deal with this reality : just because people know the facts, it doesn’t mean that they will chose to act the way you think they should.

And isn’t this precisely what the humanities are about ?

Some Things

  • Something nice in the mail: a box of delicious home-made chocolates, courtesy of my awesome brother.
  • Something  I’m working on: a little academia-inspired valentine printable. (Here is the one I made last year).
  • Something to listen to: I’ve been catching up on While She Naps episodes. I found the one with Thomas Knauer about quilting really interesting. I also started listening to the Creative Pep Talk podcast. Warmly recommended! This and this episodes are my favorite so far.
  • Something inspiring: Nicole Smeltzer’s science illustrations, Rachel Grant’s collages, and Sophie Miller’s embroideries.

    Have a lovely weekend!
