Parliament and Me Podcast Launch with May Cassar

To celebrate parliament Week 2018 and the year of VOTE100, UCL Public Policy have produced a series of podcasts featuring UCL  experts and the women who have inspired them in their journeys.

E-RIHS UK National Coordinator, Professor May Cassar has been invited to speak about Heritage Science and policy on the UCL Parliament and Me podcast, a series celebrating UCLs engagement with the world of policy. May was also joined by Baroness Margaret Sharp, who inspired her to engage with Parliament and who she considers “a much-needed champion of heritage science.” Together they share stories from their eighteen years working together, including the pivotal 2006 Parliamentary Inquiry into Science and Heritage by the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee, their shared ideals of public engagement, memory and community impact, and the creation of the Mobile Heritage Lab, a portable laboratory to reach fixed, large and fragile heritage objects.
