Framing Science in Seattle

It's almost final! Chris Mooney and Matthew Nisbet will be coming to Seattle October 5 to give their Speaking Science 2.0 presentation. The Forum on Science Ethics and Policy is excited about this opportunity to introduce both scientists and the public to the importance of understanding and controlling the context in which science is discussed.

Mooney is the author of The Republican War on Science and recently Storm World, a Seed Magazine writer and Science Blogger. Nisbet is a communications professor at American University, studies framing theory, and writes the Framing Science blog.

To prepare for the event, check out this Daily Show clip of Mooney talking about his first book.

Stay tuned for more information!
