Lunchtime Discovery: Guerrilla Science Communication

  • Wednesday, September 29, 2021
  • 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Michelle Jewell

Michelle Jewell, Science Communicator, NC State University, Department of Applied Ecology

When discoveries run against societal norms, science communicators create the spaces needed to fold new knowledge into our cultural evolution – but not without risk and (often) punishment. Michelle Jewell will walk us through examples of past and present “guerrilla” science communicators, connecting to lessons we can draw from their independent and renegade communication efforts that were critical turning points in history.
