Save the date: 21 October 2022, London


This event reflects the history of science journalism in the UK through the eyes of the journalists themselves. 

In a format based on the 'witness seminar' method of historical research, invited journalists will be interviewed in front of an audience about those aspects of their work that the media archives do not capture: the motivations, values, business pressures, office politics and all the other factors that inevitably shape the journalists' experience and their professional practice. Contributions and questions may also come from audience members. 

The discussion will range across print and broadcast media, and cover the time of 'living memory'. It might therefore include the 'celebratory' era of the 1960s, the environmental turn of the 1970s, the neoliberalism of the 1980s and the digital world of journalism since the 1990s.    

Registration will open soon.
