Sarah Wiseman’s article on Bright Club (a comedy club where researchers talk about their work) is published in the EPSRC‘s magazine, Pioneer on page 36. Sarah writes about using stand up comedy to talk to non-specialist audiences about her (EPSRC-funded) CHI+MED research on number entry.
Here’s Sarah in May 2013 at Bright Club, talking about “Reading” – on how words and numbers can be misread, and on the troubling proliferation of the mis-apostrophed, over-pluralised panini’s in cafes and restaurants.
