Professor Danny Dorling, Madeleine Sumption and Mikal Mast give talks on the subject of media influence and impact.
How can you make media work count in terms of impact and influence? Our speakers are all established communicators, with research engagement at the heart of their work. They are also highly experienced in dealing with controversial or politically significant topics (migration, identity, poverty to name a few) in. In this session, you will be able to take away some of the routes to success and pitfalls to avoid – helpful both if you are looking to approach the media, but also if the media approach you.
