Subject: CFP - 2008 Science & the Public Conference
Date: Tue, October 16, 2007 9:55 am
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Call For Papers:
?Third Annual 'Science & the Public' Conference
University of Manchester, 21st and 22nd, June 2008

The past twenty years of scholarly study has
demonstrated that science communication is a much more
complex process than merely publishing in scientific
journals and attending scientific meetings. Today the
sciences are linked to society through many different
channels of communication. The public interfaces with
science during controversies that involve scientists
as well as journalists, politicians and the citizenry
as a whole. This intersection of science and the
public raises many questions about the motivations of,
and constraints on, actors involved in producing
information about science for non-professional
audiences. It also raises some fascinating questions
about the nature, contexts and goals of the public
communication of science from both a contemporary and
historic perspective. This conference aims to bring
together the wide ranging strands of academia that
consider science as it intersects with non-scientific
cultures.

Possible topics may include:

-	Patients and publics in health services
-	Notions of expertise in the public
-	Public science and science policy
-	Technological development and the public
-	Science communication theory in practice
-	News and entertainment media
-	Science on the internet
-	Science, technology and medicine in museums
-	Public interest and 'the public interest'

We would particularly like to encourage those taking a
critical approach to studying the public communication
of technology and/or medicine to submit abstracts. The
conference organizers also encourage full panel
submissions and roundtable sessions on all topics
related to the social, cultural, political, and
ethical issues surrounding science & the public.

Panel proposals should include a panel abstract and
individual abstracts for each of the papers on the
panel as well as contact information (name,
affiliation, email) of the presider (moderator) and
all panel members. Individual paper proposals for a
20-minute presentation should submit an abstract (no
longer than 300 words). Roundtable proposals should be
a single abstract with names and contact information
for all presenters.

All submissions should be emailed to
[log in to unmask] by 14th March 2008.
Please send enquires to this address as well.
