Meeting abstract

Danish Science Journalists' Association invites you to participate in the Dissensus Spring Conference 2009.

The conference touches on two relevant topics: The future landscape of science journalism - specificallythe influence of new media; and framing: The use of a specific angle, analogy, or strategic way of communictating in order to sell a story, make yourself understood - or even affect society's perception of science. We aim to inspire you with tools to optimize your impact, particularly focusing on »framing« and together we will formulate three focus points for our common challenges in the future of science communication.

Speakers include:

  • Matthew C. Nisbet, PhD, School of Communication, American University, Washington D.C., USA.
  • Anne Knudsen, Editor-in-chief, Weekendavisen.
  • Michael Gross, PhD., Science Writer, Birkbeck College, University of London, UK.
