Join Professor Sarah Dillon and Dr Claire Craig for the launch of their new book Storylistening: Narrative Evidence and Public Reasoning.

The two authors will talk to Bennett Professor of Public Policy Diane Coyle about the urgent need to use stories to improve public reasoning. They’ll share a theory and practice of listening to narratives where decisions are strongly influenced by contentious knowledge and powerful imaginings in areas such as climate change, artificial intelligence, the economy, and nuclear weapons and power.

Professors Genevieve Liveley, Peter Gluckman and Mike Hulme will then reflect on the roles of stories in the public humanities, scientific advice, and climate change debates.

This online event is a must for anyone interested in how all types of evidence should inform public debate and decision-making, including policymakers, expert advisors from the sciences, humanities and social sciences, and anyone interested in the public humanities. There will be the opportunity to ask the guests your own questions.
