researchEd national conference

On 9 September 2017 I gave a talk at the national researchEd conference in London. The presentation was about how mythbusting might lead to new myths. The presentation covered the following:

  • I started by explaining how myths might come about, by referencing some papers about neuromyths.
  • I then used the case of iron in spinach to illustrate how criticising myths can lead to new myths (paper by Rekdal).
  • I gave examples of some themes that are in danger of becoming new myths.
  • I concluded that it is important to read a lot, stay critical and observe nuance. No false dichotomies please.

I will endeavor to write this up at one point. Slides below.
