MSCL Colloquium – Dr. Thassilo Franke

This June, we are kicking off our Tuesday’s MSCL Colloquiums series – an open place for discussion and academic reflection on science communication and planetary health. The aim is to have an open space for intellectual thought and reflection on this multidisciplinary topic for the community, students, and practitioners.

With this, we would like to invite you to the first talk of the series “Discussing Science: what works in which format to target whom. Is it possible to achieve the holy grail of science communication?” by Dr. Thassilo Franke, taking place virtually on June 21st, 2022 at 14:00.

Science is important, science arouses keen interest in society, and science should be communicated and discussed. The question is: how? What ingredients go into the soup that makes up good science communication? How long do I cook until even the hard-to-digest ingredients are digestible? How do I dose spices like humor, irony, and provocation? How do I adjust the ingredients to the tastes of the time – or is that even necessary? How do I give the soup my own distinctive flavor? How do I garnish it and to whom do I want to serve it? And – last but not least – how do I find out if everyone liked it?

Discuss these and other questions with Dr. Franke, Science Communicator at MSCL and Senior Researcher at BIOTOPIA – Natural History Museum of Bavaria.

We encourage you to participate and ask you to register in advance here. This session will be held in German.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the colloquium.
