Science communication : culture, identity and citizenship / Sarah R. Davies, Maja Horst

By: Davies, Sarah R.
Horst, Maja.
ISBN: 9781137503640.Publisher: London : Palgrave Macmilan, cop. 2016Description: viii, 266 p.Summary: This book describes current practices in science communication, from citizen science to Twitter storms, and celebrates this diversity through case studies and examples. However, the authors also reflect on how scholars and practitioners can gain better insight into science communication through new analytical methods and perspectives. From science PR to the role of embodiment and materiality, some aspects of science communication have been under-studied. How can we better notice these? Science Communication provides a new synthesis for Science Communication Studies. It uses the historical literature of the field, new empirical data, and interdisciplinary thought to argue that the frames which are typically used to think about science communication often omit important features of how it is imagined and practised. It is essential reading for students, scholars, and practitioners of science education, science and technology studies, museum studies, and media and communication studies. (Font: Editor)
