Early Career Researchers’ Network – our second free Zoom seminar

This event provides a unique opportunity to hear from and speak to world-renowned academics on how they translated their research to public and media consumption – and the obstacles and challenges they faced in doing so.

There will also be an opportunity for participants to meet and network informally.

The two speakers are:

Professor Nathan Abrams FLSW
Director of Impact and Engagement for the College of Arts, Humanities and Business. Bangor University

Nathan is the lead director for the Centre of Film, Television and Screen Studies and co-convenes the British Jewish Contemporary Cultures network. He also lectures, writes and broadcasts widely (in English and Welsh) on UK and American popular culture, history film and intellectual culture.

Professor Lynne Boddy FLSW
School of Biosciences, Cardiff University

Lynne is an ardent communicator of the mysteries and importance of the amazing hidden Kingdom of Fungi to students and to the general public. She has communicated her research in the UK and internationally, including TV and radio programs, popular talks, videos, films, shows and exhibitions.

The event will be chaired by:

Professor Jenny Kitzinger
Director of Research: Impact and Engagement, School of Journalism, Media and Culture, Cardiff University

Jenny conducts in-depth longitudinal work on patient pathways, including court judgments, and explores the treatment of patients in ‘coma’ and the vegetative state. She is active in public and policy engagement particularly around death and dying, works closely with artists and policy makers, and has co-produced a series of radio programs on ethics and end-of-life decision making.
