The Center for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities (CEAH) sponsors faculty seminars and workshops on focused topics. The events offer Iowa State University arts and humanities faculty the opportunity to learn about funding opportunities and grantsmanship, to present their research in an interdisciplinary setting or to discuss topics related to the CEAH's focus on faculty research. The Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic development (VPRED) offers a full range of workshops for faculty focusing on the development of competitive grant proposals each year: Faculty Orientation and Faculty Development Programs.
Ethical Issues in Science Communication: A Theory-Based Approach
Submission deadline: January 31, 2013
May 30 - June 1, 2013
As science continues to become implicated in personal and collective decision-making, the stakes for communicating science to non-expert audiences intensify. In such an environment, a clear articulation of ethical issues arising from science communication is essential. Unfortunately, such an articulation does not yet exist. The purpose of this symposium is to bring together scholars from across disciplines whose research can contribute toward a theoretical articulation of the ethical issues surrounding the communication of science to non-expert audiences.
For this symposium, we invite work from relevant disciplines including communication, rhetoric, philosophy, science and technology studies, and the sciences themselves, on topics such as:
This list is illustrative but not intended to be exhaustive. Work at all stages of development is invitedfrom early overviews to completed studies. We expect to be able to support travel costs for at least some participants. Contact Michael Dahlstrom, email below, for more information.
Proceedings of the workshop will be published in print-on-demand and electronic formats. In addition, this event will serve as the first of a two-part symposium series aimed at the creation of an edited volume introducing the best available work on issues in science communication ethics to our scholarly communities and helping to define the area for future study.
For consideration, submit application to email@example.com and include:
