Calvin Lab auditorium 

The number of journalists at newspapers is decreasing, as is the number of science sections in daily newspapers. Online news sites cannot compensate for this loss. “Fake news” is exploding. What does that mean for the future of well researched journalism and science journalism in particular?

Christoph Drösser will take us through the history of science journalism and show us some promising signs that all is not bad in today’s world of publishing.

Light refreshments will be served after the lecture, at 4:00 p.m.
