Latif Nasser is the 2021 Joseph H. Hazen Lecturer in the History of Science.
While a graduate student in the history of science, Latif Nasser started moonlighting as a journalist. Upon graduating, he took the plunge covering science in print for the Boston Globe, through the podcast Radiolab, and in a Netflix docuseries called Connected. In this Hazen lecture, he will tell a bit about this professional left turn, as well as give a few tips about how to tell science stories — past and present — to audiences outside academia. Nasser will be joined in conversation with historians of science Alex Wellerstein and Ingrid Ockert, followed by Q & A with current PhD students and the audience.
