Science & the Media mini-conference to be held 2 pm Wednesday (12 Dec), CG01

Several Media School colleagues will present their research on Science and The Media Wednesday afternoon. Topics include public perceptions of science, blogging in Antarctica, representations of space on the web, news framing of nanotechnology, and science journalism after the Leveson Inquiry.

Members of the Science and Media research cluster, an emerging group within the Media School, have organised this mini-conference to open a dialogue amongst colleagues across the university regarding the ways in which science and media intersect. The event is intended to be casual, so please come for all or part of the discussion.

The mini-conference will be held from 2-4 pm in CG01 Wednesday (12 Dec); please see the Agenda for more detail.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Shelley Thompson, Stuart Allan or An Nguyen in the Media School.
