Their site states:

“A Forum for Dialogues

Can physics be poetized? Is there a rhetoric of physics? Physics and literature represent two diametrically opposed ways of viewing the world. In combination they could develop a productive potential. At present however, no institutionalised dialogue exists.

The interdisciplinary research-centre ELINAS aims at creating an institutionalised infrastructure for research, dedicated to the reciprocal transfer of knowledge between physics and literature. The center is concerned with the importance of language and metaphors in physical research as well as with discursive and narrative modulations of scientific theories in literary texts.”
