It’s official. The big event is on. At the end of this month, it may be the end in more ways than one: four will enter, but only two will leave. It’s the Pretty Boys vs. the Godless Savages in a brutal debate at the Bell Museum.

Seed magazine writers and influential science bloggers gather to discuss new directions in science communication. This lively panel discussion will cover a range of topics, including science and culture, public engagement with science, the role of scientists in the public discussion of science, and communication via the Internet, film, museums and other media. Author and journalist Chris Mooney, American University communications professor Matthew Nisbet, University of Minnesota anthropologist Greg Laden and University of Minnesota Morris biology professor PZ Myers will join moderator Jessica Marshall, a U of M science journalism lecturer. A reception in Dinkytown will follow the event.
Co-sponsored by the Bell Museum of Natural History; Seed Magazine/ScienceBlogs; The Humphrey Institute’s Center for Science, Technology and Public Policy; and the Minnesota Journalism Center.
It’s gonna be intense, man.
If you can’t make it, rumor has it that it will also be taped for the Point of Inquiry podcast. A recording won’t fully capture the smell of fear or the texture of coagulating blood, though…SO BE THERE.
