Projected Futures

Concordia's Department of Journalism offered an intensive and experiential summer school that challenged participants to rethink how science is communicated within society. Using an interdisciplinary approach, graduate students were invited to experiment and contemplate how to create new forms of scientific storytelling.


  1. Students were treated to lectures by renowned Canadian science journalists, who shared their wisdom and tricks of the trade with the participants.
  2. Pulitzer Prize winner and NYU Professor Dan Fagin held a public lecture on the current state of science journalism and how to use data in narrative storytelling.
  3. Not only did students learn about science journalism, they were invited to create a model on how to improve it.
