Embodiment of Science in Science Slams. A Case of Informal Public Science Communication

Research output: Contributions to collected editions/worksArticle in conference proceedingsResearch


Science slam is a new approach of presenting research and science in popular and artistic ways. In public science communication events like science slams an external audience judges whether a presentation included an adequate amount of science and entertainment. Expertise and institutions are important sources for the audience to generate trust. I additionally argue that social knowledge and embodiment of science are playing an important role in public science communication.
