Science in the movies

Posted 23/08/2012 by sevans

As for the portrayal of scientists in TV and film, Hollywood has often stereotyped scientists as nerdy, evil, or noble but hopelessly out of touch. Recently however, Hollywood’s approach towards science, and scientists, has started to change.

On Wednesday 29 August, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) will explore the relationship between science and popular entertainment in a one-hour audio webinar titled: Hollywood & Science: Bringing accurate science to TV and film.

During the webinar, an expert panel will look at new collaborations that are bringing scientists and Hollywood professionals together in an effort to create programming that is both entertaining and scientifically plausible—if not entirely accurate. 

For further details visit the AAAS at http://membercentral.aaas.org/multimedia/webinars/hollywood-science

Unfortunately, only AAAS members will be able to access the webinar.
