Are you involved in public science engagement, or thinking about it? Are you interested in promoting dialogue about science with a broader spectrum of publics then you currently reach? Do you want to support a culture of enthusiasm and advocacy for science in your community? Are you concerned about effectively navigating tensions at the intersections of science, culture, and faith in your classroom, at your field site, on social media, or in public settings?
Join us for a workshop on science engagement with religious publics, developed as a collaboration between the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) “Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion” program and science communication specialists from the AAAS Center for Public Engagement on Science and Technology. This workshop will include:
While the focus of the workshop is on engagement with religious communities and people of faith, the content is broadly relevant to effective science communication, with applications for formal academic instruction, in social and traditional media, and in a range of public engagement settings.
Lunch will be provided. Participants are limited to a maximum of 40.
The workshop will be of relevance to AAPA members involved in public science engagement, from undergraduates to senior faculty and researchers
