Before Christmas, Jane Gregory and I announced a meeting to explore the career and influence of the science journalist Peter Ritchie Calder (1906-1982) to be held this month.

So as to give a longer development time, we have decided to postpone the Ritchie Calder meeting.

We are postponing the meeting by a year, and enlarging its scope to cover the development of science journalism in the UK, embracing print, TV and radio.

This conference will be held at the LSE in spring 2008 in London.

Please send expressions of interest to Jane Gregory ([email protected]) or Tim Boon ([email protected] ) by 4 May 2007. A formal call for papers will be built on initial responses.
