Event description

Description

Effective communication has always been at the heart of good science. Why then do concerns about how science makes news persist? In this talk, I’ll explore how some high-profile examples of scientific research moved from the laboratory to the newsroom. Who is routinely involved in this process and what are their roles and responsibilities? Furthermore, how do citizens make sense of new information about the sciences? Finally, I will consider some of the implications of how science becomes news for future citizens, scientists and journalists, i.e. today’s children and young people.

Speaker: Prof Richard Holliman, The Open University
