Pennoni Panels: Science: Fact or Fiction?
Start Date: 5/23/2019Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 5/23/2019End Time: 5:00 PM
Event Description

During a Congressional session, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared that science shouldn't be a partisan issue. With the battle over fact and fiction taking place between the American government, journalists, and general public, science writing is in a fragile state. How does a writer advocate for science during a period where science and its methods are routinely dismissed, derided, and discounted? What adjustments need to be made to demonstrate the veracity of findings, the interpretation of those findings, without further isolating those who need these findings most? This panel will address the events that have ushered us into this scientific quagmire, suggest ways science writing can adjust to address new needs, and contemplate science journalism's future.
