Projected Futures 5: Experimental Science Journalism Studies

International Graduate Summer School (3 credits)

August 8 - 12, 2022 (in-person)

With mainly asynchronous online components before and after

Projected Futures 5 is an intensive and experiential summer school that will challenge participants to rethink how science is communicated with society. Graduate students will be exposed to the foundations of evidence-based science journalism and then asked to experiment to create new forms of scientific storytelling. 

The school issues a collaborative, experimental challenge to participants:

What plausible future do you project for science journalism?

Show us and the world in two weeks! 

One of a Kind Experience 
A first of its kind in the Department of Journalism, Projected Futures was designed with the World Federation of Science Journalists and the Science Writers and Communicators of Canada. Student work will be presented at a Science Journalism Summit on August 12.

Audience
Local, national and international graduate students from any discipline with an interest in new forms of scientific storytelling and interdisciplinary experimentation. Those interested in communicating about health and medicine, in particular, should apply.
