The next meeting of the SIRG reading group will take place on Wednesday 27 October @ 2.00pm in the David Gorham Library (first floor Venables, N1015). This month we have two items for consideration. The first is a work-in-progress book chapter from Chris Williams of the OU’s History department entitled:
‘The origins of the UK’s Police National Computer, 1958-1977: surveillance, power and the government machine’
Chris will be joining us this month.
The second is a draft article by SIRG member Allan Jones, which he will be submitting to the journal Public Understanding of Science, entitled:
‘Gatekeepers and framers: The producer’s role in early BBC science broadcasts’
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served at 2 pm. I look forward to seeing you there.
All are welcome to the SIRG reading group, which is usually held the last Wednesday of every month. For further details, contact the group’s convenor: Ian Martin.
