Science and the Public, 2008 Conference, 21-22 June
University of Manchester, UK
Today the sciences are linked to society through many different channels of communication. The public interfaces with science during controversies that involve scientists as well as journalists, politicians and the citizenry as a whole. This interdisciplinary conference brings together diverse strands of academia in order to consider science, technology and medicine as they intersect with non-professional cultures in both contemporary and historical settings.
We are fortunate to have obtained Manchester's Victoria Baths, well known as the winner of BBC2's Restoration series, as our conference venue. These historic public baths provide an appropriate venue in which to discuss the intersection of science and the public. Although the Baths are currently being extensively renovated, we have been allowed to schedule a tour as part of the programme.
The deadline for registration is Saturday 14 June.
