Communicating Science in an Age of Disbelief in Experts

  • Carnegie Institution for Science 1530 P Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20005 United States

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences cordially invites you to a program at the Carnegie Institution for Science on Communicating Science in an Age of Disbelief in Experts

This program will explore the disconnect between Americans' high regard for scientists and the growing distrust in scientific consensus about significant issues. Join us as we examine how science could be better communicated in an age of increasing ambivalence about the value of expertise.
