This course will offer students an introduction to the theory and practice of public communication of scientific research. It will cover the key models through which science communication is theorized, and in particular the distinction between one way, or broadcast, forms of communication, and dialogic or interactive mechanisms. As such it will consider the role of research communication in democratic societies and the need for public debate on the nature and direction of publicly funded research. It will also explore key formats for science communication, such as science writing, science in museums, and public lectures or events.
