Unveiling aggressive corporate landlords is just the most recent series of articles Cat McShane has published based upon close collaboration with scholars. Also themes like ageing and other social questions were prepared working closely with specialised scholars. Working with institutions brings knowledge and ideas at the cutting edge, but can also bring its challenges! With these experiences Cat McShane is among the pioneers of a new development of closer collaboration between journalists and scholars and she works on a greater understanding between journalists and academia. In this presentation she’ll present case stories and particularly focus on the ‘how’ of the collaboration, what went well, what was difficult and how was it overcome.
