UCL’s STS Departmental Seminar invites you to a special one-day meeting exploring

****************************************************************************** JG Crowther: science journalism, science policy, science & society ****************************************************************************** 17 June 2005

J.G. Crowther was not a scientist, but his name is familiar to historians of science in Britain in the twentieth century. His writing about science and its social relations brought his ideas to wide attention, and his contributions to science journalism, publishing and policy were substantial. However, there is relatively little written about the man, his work and his influence.

This informal meeting aims to bring together existing scholarship on Crowther, and to identify areas for future research.

Anyone interested to offer a paper on any aspect of Crowther’s work is invited to contact Jane Gregory, [email protected]. If you would like to attend the meeting, please email [email protected] and further details will be sent to you in due course. Registration is free.
