Where does science communication end and science journalism start? Are they inclusive, or are science journalists a breed apart from science communicators?

Come along to this panel event to hear ABC Science editor and journalist Dr Anna Salleh, Regional Executive Editor at Nature Publishing Group Stephen Pincock, media/communications manager for the UNSW Faculty of Science Deborah Smith, and Sydney Morning Herald science editor Nicky Phillips debate the complex intersection between science journalism and science communication, the rise of branded and native content, the ethical challenges for writers working in this space, and what this means for science journalism in the future.

Whether you define yourself as a science journalist, a science communicator, or some weird mutant love-child caught in their divorce proceedings, this is a panel not to miss.

When: Wednesday 9 September, 6.30pm
Where: Sydney Mechanics' School of Art, Level 1, 280 Pitt St, Sydney
Cost: $10 for ASC members, $15 for non-members. Includes drinks, nibblies and more riveting entertainment than a dog on rollerskates ... but also more clever.
