Book Launch: Communicating Science

The launch features five authors telling the story of their country: the USA, Pakistan, Australia, East Africa and Russia. The speakers were selected from the 108 authors who contributed to a book describing how modern science communication emerged in different countries around the world.

Five speakers, 5 minutes each, then discussion and questions.

The book is huge, 996 pages, and contains 38 national accounts. Sixteen tables document and compare the dates of key events. It is the first time the development of this international field has been comprehensively documented. The book was going to be launched at the PCST Conference but then COVID-19 came along.

Everyone is invited to join this launch Zoom event, to be chaired by Professor Joan Leach from the Centre for Public Awareness of Science at The Australian National University.
