Second Applied Epistemology Workshop
The Epistemology of Science Communication: New Directions

In an age of widespread narratives about public distrust of scientific experts, researchers across the social sciences and philosophy have investigated how to enhance public trust in science and how to communicate scientific findings more effectively. But there are a range of normative epistemological questions underlying these discussions that have been largely neglected. Are there conditions under which distrust of scientific experts is rational? What institutional processes (e.g., peer review, evaluation of research, and open access) would make scientific work more worthy of public trust? How, if at all, should laypeople without scientific training approach the consumption of scientific research? This workshop will aim to explore these and related questions, and to crystallize an agenda for the epistemology of science communication.
More details forthcoming!
