Exploring Science Communication demonstrates how science and technology studies approaches can be explicitly integrated into effective, powerful science communication research. Through a range of case studies, from climate change and public parks to Facebook, museums, and media coverage, it helps you to understand and analyse the complex and diverse ways science and society relate in today’s knowledge intensive environments. Notable features include: • A focus on showing how to bring academic STS theory into your own science communication research • Coverage of a range of topics and case studies illustrating different analyses and approaches • Speaks to disciplines across Media & Communication, Science & Technology Studies, Health Sciences, Environmental Sciences and related areas. With this book you will learn how science communication can be more than just about disseminating facts to the public, but actually generative, leading to new understanding, research, and practices.

Connections, Assemblages, and Open Ends

This conclusion will do two things. It will draw together the key observations that have emerged across the book as a whole, from Chapters 2 and 3, which outlined what STS approaches and sensibilities could contribute to the study and practice of science communication, but also from the empirical chapters that followed. But it will also highlight some important things the book has not done, and which remain lacunae. We ask what is missing, and why.

Before we do this, though, it is worth stating again upfront what we wanted this volume to do. The book invites readers to ask new kinds of questions as we look at science communication. There is, as we discussed in ...
