What's the talk about?
Note: this will be on the 3rd floor not the 5th! I'll add directions ASAP and make sure it's obvious on the evening. :-)
It’s Lucy’s job to make microbiology accessible, and this includes getting accurate science into the mainstream media - something that’s not easy when competing with the likes of the latest celebrity news. With an apparent increase in science on TV as well as groups like Skeptics in the Pub, Lucy will talk about science in the media and the many and varied ways in which science is engaging with the public and asks: Is science becoming an integral part of popular culture?
Lucy Harper is Communications Manager at the Society for Applied Microbiology. You can find her on Twitter as @lucyharper.
The talk will start between 7.30 and 8pm - please join us for a drink, a chat and a question & answer session! No booking required.
