Exploring Science Communication brilliantly demonstrates how Science Communication can be enhanced and elaborated through an engagement with Science and Technology Studies. Analytically and empirically, the volume traces the complex roles of Science Communication in the making and doing of science, publics and politics. Essential reading for both analysts and practitioners.
Science communication emerges as much more than getting new knowledge ‘out’ to larger society. Through a series of insightful contributions, science communication is revealed as shaping both science and society, re-imagining our socio-technical futures and creating narratives of governance, responsibility and change. Seen from an STS perspective, science communication ‘matters’ in important, challenging and unexpected ways.
