Nanotechnology and the media: The inside story
Date:11/28/2007

WASHINGTON--Is media coverage of nanotechnologys potential risks growing" If so, who or what is driving articles in national newspapers and newswiresenvironmental and consumer organizations, scientists, law makers, or industrial and financial groups" How do broadcast journalists decide to cover a nanotechnology story, especially one about possible risk-benefit tradeoffs" Do radio and television correspondents face special challenges reporting on a technology which most Americans do not know about and which is on a scale invisible to the human eye"

The Wilson Centers Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies will explore these and other questions at a program featuring National Public Radio science and technology reporter Nell Greenfieldboyce, and Lehigh University professor Sharon M. Friedman. Ms. Greenfieldboyce, who is heard regularly on Morning Edition and All Things Considered, will offer insights about covering nanotechnologyfrom government oversight to nano-cosmetics. Professor Friedman will present her latest results from tracking seven years of newspaper and wire service reporting of nanotechnology risks in the United States and United Kingdom, research she does in collaboration with Brenda P. Egolf of Lehigh University.

The event and live webcast will take place on Tuesday, December 18th at 1:00 p.m. in the 5th Floor Conference Room of the Woodrow Wilson Center (www.wilsoncenter.org/directions).
