CFP - 'STEM and Beyond? Informal Science Learning Across Disciplines'

Science in Public and Brunel STS Cluster are pleased to invite you to submit an abstract to a forthcoming full day workshop about public engagement in the sciences, arts, humanities and social sciences on 19th May at Brunel University London. Titled “STEM and Beyond? Informal Science Learning Across Disciplines”, we welcome contributions from academics from all fields, science communicators, educational practitioners, and science and technology studies scholars. The event is an opportunity to both reflect upon the impacts of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) agenda on communication in all disciplines, and to present examples of good practice. The event features a keynote presentation by Prof. Martin Bauer of the LSE on science communication across the disciplines.

Full event details here:

Please submit titles and 300 word abstracts for contributions to by Monday 6th February. Please put ‘STEM and Beyond abstract’ in the subject heading, and include your institutional affiliation if you have one, although we welcome freelance scicomm and education practitioners to join us to share their ideas and experience.

The event is co-organised by the Brunel Science, Technology and Society (STS) Research Cluster and the Science in Public Research Network (SiP), with support from Brunel’s College of Business, Arts and Social Sciences, Brunel’s Institute of Environment, Health and Societies, and the Brunel STEM Learning Centre.
