Ian Stewart will be one of the expert voices on CBC Radio Ideas Programme, "Science Under Siege", to be broadcast on CBC Radio 1 from Wednesday, June 3rd to Friday June 5th (9:00pm local time).
"Are we living through an Anti-Scientific Revolution? Scientists around the world are increasingly restricted in what they can research, publish and say — constrained by belief and ideology from all sides. Historically, science has always had a thorny relationship with institutions of power. But what happens to societies which turn their backs on curiosity-driven research? And how can science lift the siege? CBC Radio producer Mary Lynk looks for some answers in this three-part series. "
The show can be listened to live, or via podcast/stream at cbc.ca/ideas.
