Saturday 5th October – 2pm – Portobello Baptist Church Hall
Melissa Terras, Professor of Digital Cultural Heritage at The University of Edinburgh, discusses her book Picture-Book Professors with Edward Ross, graphic novelist and creator of Filmish. This in-conversation event explores issues around representation of academics and scientists in children’s books and culture at large, and how they affect our attitudes towards expertise, science and knowledge.
