On Saturday 20th May 2006 Imperial College Science Communication Group, in conjunction with the London Public Understanding of Science Seminar, will host the first Postgraduate Conference on Science and the Public: Interdisciplinary Approaches. This one day event will bring together postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in the area of ‘science and the public’ in interdisciplinary discussion and debate, helping to link researchers from the disparate strands of academia that consider science as it influences public life.

We hope to attract delegates from a wide variety of disciplines – including science and technology studies, science communication, history, cultural studies, psychology, anthropology, literary criticism, education, museum studies, sociology, media studies, policy studies, geography and others – and to focus on the critical study of science communication.
