Increasingly as public engagement practitioners we are asked to look at ways we might engage with more diverse audiences. But what do we know about who, how and why people do (or do not engage) with science.

In our next Engagement@Manchester best practice session, our special guest: Dr Emily Dawson, UCL, will present on the topic of “Equity, Exclusion & Everyday Science Learning”.

Emily’s work focuses on how people learn about and engage with science, with an emphasis on equity and social justice. Her research and teaching explore how some science education practices across the formal and informal education sectors (i.e. from schools, to museums, to watching TV at home) set certain kinds of people up to be successful when they engage with science, while other people are set up to fail.

Seeing Emily talk and hearing about her research really challenged me about my work and inspired me to think differently about how I do public engagement. Her work is relevant for anyone wanting to do public engagement no matter what discipline you are in.” – Prof Sheena Cruickshank, Academic Lead for Public Engagement

All welcome to this best practice session. No registration required.

Do get in touch if you have any queries.
