- methods for studying 'new' and 'old' media

- how transport academics could or should engage with the media

- how (and if) media coverage can lead to policy change

The symposium starts with lunch on Monday 9th June (12-7pm) and continues on Tuesday 10th (9:30-12:30). It will be held at Lancaster University's Bailrigg Conference Centre and is organised and supportedby CeMoRe in collaboration with Westminster University.
