Wednesday, November 13 1-2 p.m. Engleman Hall A 120
Special Guest Dr. Sarah Tinker Perrault (University of California, Davis) describes how science writers can develop readers’ trust by taking on scientist-citizen roles in their writing. She will present three dimensions of trustworthiness — knowledge, integrity, and respect for readers — and demonstrate how each matters if scientists are to serve as trusted advisers on scientiﬁc topics in a public sphere characterized by uncertainty, cultural diversity, and heterogeneous and sometimes conﬂicting sets of values.
Following the talk, Dr. Tinker Perrault will host a science-writing workshop for those interested in learning more about how to better communicate with publics about science-related issues.
Light refreshments will be served!
