How many National Scientific Advisors on public Covid Strategy were women? What informed the messaging of public understanding of the science of Covid? Why is the cliché image of the scientist ¬- a person in a white coat ¬- a misrepresentation of scientific endeavour? Mary Orr (St Andrews), Alison E. Martin (Johannes Gutenberg, Mainz) and Martin Willis (Cardiff) will discuss key 19th- and 20th-century turning points for professional science and debate why the histories and cultures of science matter for better understanding and communication of the sciences today.
