The Dynamic Interactions between Science, Technology & Society

Thursday, September 27, 2007

Columbia University, Schapiro Center, Davis Auditorium (Morningside Campus)

Presented By

Presented by Science Alliance


Science Alliance members have formed a multi-institutional collaborative taskforce to educate both scientists and non-scientists about the value of scientific communication. This newly minted Science Communication Consortium has organized a series of dynamic lectures focusing on disseminating science to a general audience, interacting with multiple facets of media (including written, spoken, and e-communication outlets), and advocating for science in legislative initiatives and policy.

The kick-off event will be on Sept 27, 2007 at 7pm. This event, tentatively titled "The Dynamic Interactions between Science, Technology & Society," will feature Dr. Sheila Jasanoff, Pforzheimer Professor of Science and Technology Studies, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.

Dr. Jasanoff is considered the foremost scholar studying the role of science and technology in the realms of public policy, politics, and law in modern democratic societies. This seminar will address the current state of science and technology in society, with reference to scientific influence in policymaking and media communications, and the context for scientific communication today.
