The PalAss is on YouTube! We have developed a new PalAss YouTube channel as part of our response to the results of the 2018 PalAss Diversity Study, in order to reach out to a broader and more diverse audience. The first five videos on fossil fish (presented by Dr Tom Challands, University of Edinburgh), trilobites (presented by Dr Lucy McCobb, National Museum of Wales), fossil pigments (presented by Dr Maria McNamara, University College Cork), fossil plants (presented by Dr Susannah Lydon, University of Nottingham) and mass extinctions (presented by Dr Alex Dunhill, University of Leeds) are already available. An additional video will be launched soon.
Are you interested in contributing? If you want to share your passion for fossils or to share insights into careers in palaeontology, consider submitting a contribution to the channel to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Potential topics include (but are not limited to):
- What’s your research about?
- What’s your favourite fossil and why?
- What’s it like to be a palaeontologist?
- What are your favourite parts of your job?
- Why did you choose to work in palaeontology?
Videos should be no more than 5 min long (see our contributor guidelines).
