Abstract

Leaders of the science establishment are seeking help with communicating science to the public. Rhetoricians of science are eager to respond. The two communities, however, continue to have mismatched expectations of each other; while scientists are looking for quick communication fixes, rhetoricians want to make everything more complicated. These essays, originally presented at the 2013 preconference of the Association for the Rhetoric of Science & Technology, explore a variety of exemplary projects bringing scientists and rhetoricians into full collaborations with substantial benefits on both sides.
