"Science Voices: scientists speak about science and themselves" - Royal Society, London - 12 and 13 May 2011

‘Science Voices: scientists speak about science and themselves’
12 and 13 May 2011
Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace London

From oral history to collegial obituary, from witness seminar to ‘personal information files’, scientists are complementing the legacy and understanding of their work with more personal and in-depth records. Some of these are developed with oral historians and others by scientific peers. How is this important material created and framed intellectually? How is it used by historians in conjunction with paper archives and scientific publications? Scientists and historians will come together to discuss a range of ‘science voices’, with representatives from several ongoing projects including ‘Museum Lives: an oral history of the Natural History Museum’, and the Royal Society’s journal ‘Biographical Memoirs’.

Join us for this two-day event which will be of interest to historians, scientists, biographers, archive and library professionals, and those involved in science communication for exhibition, television and radio.
