The research group Science – Mass Media – Public

The research group Science – Mass Media – Public has been affiliated to the Institute for Science and Technology Studies (IWT) between 1995-2012.

Historians and sociologists of science jointly adressed questions such as how did the relationship of science and its diverse publics develop over time, how are scientific topics (e.g. climate or biomedicine) presented in the mass media and in what ways do public presentations of science shape research agendas and other aspects of knowledge production.
