I chose Chapter 8 because nothing in it has been published already. In Chapter 8 I try to map out some of the context for the work in the book & discuss implications that go beyond science communication/education into other public spaces as well as into how we understand what ‘counts’ as science. I hope you find it useful!

If you want to find out more about the book you can read a magazine article, the FREE zine or listen to a podcast. For stickers & a printed zine you’ll have to come to a talk.

The book is available from my publishers, Routledge. If you don’t have a university or organisational library that can get a copy for you, please email me for more info about how you can get your hands on a copy (aka: I’ve got some spare!). I’m on emily(dot)dawson(at)
