Abstract

Science communication can take many forms. It may involve universities trying to promote their brand, harried parents taking their families to a science event, efforts to enable laypeople to participate in science policymaking, researchers giving public lectures at learned institutions, or social media storms around scientists’ public missteps. Science communication is present in multiple places in our societies, and it is as rich and variegated as that frequency and multiplicity would suggest. Taken together, it is a riot of colour, strategies, emotions, sites, visions, objects, and meaning-making.
