Video, Slides & Readings for Sackler Lecture on Media & Science Policy Debates
On Tuesday, May 22, I delivered a lecture as part of the National Academies' Sackler Colloquium on the "Science of Science Communication," reviewing the role of the media in science policy debates. The video of the lecture along with those of my fellow panelists Dominique Brossard and William Eveland is now available online.
The lectures begin following brief introductions by Ralph Cicerone, president of the National Academies, and Dietram Scheufele, co-organizer of the event.
I have also posted online the slides for download. Below is a reading list specific to key subjects covered in my talk.
I am back from travel on June 6 and will have much more to say about the many outstanding presentations from leading researchers in the fields of decision science and communication.
