Breakfast Series with Deborah Blum

Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at 8:00am to 9:30am

Emma Rogers Room, 10-340 77 Massachusetts Avenue

Twice–yearly women in the MIT community are invited to informal "breakfast talks." Known as the Breakfast Series, they are occasions when women faculty and administrators explore the role of women in the academy, sharing the pathways their professional lives have taken — the people and events that have influenced their direction.

Our Spring speaker is Deborah Blum, a Pulitzer-prize winning American science journalist, columnist and the director of the Knight Science Journalism program at MIT.  She won the Pulitzer prize for her series, "The Monkey Wars," which explored the complex ethical and moral questions surrounding primate research when she worked at ‘The Sacramento Bee’.

Deborah Blum has written six books including The Poison Squad (2018), and The Poisoner’s Handbook (2010) and launched the award-winning science magazine ‘Undark’.  She is a former president of the National Association of Science Writers, was a member of the governing board of the World Federation of Science Writers, and currently serves on the board of advisors of the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing.

Breakfast is served promptly at 8:00am. Cost is $12 per person. To reserve your spot, please email wleague@mit.edu and note any dietary restrictions.
