Hayslett, Marlit (PhD Student). “The Structure of Scientific Communication”. 2016 Conference of the international organization for Public Communication of Science and Technology (PCST) in Istanbul, Turkey. April 26, 2016.
Abstract: This paper examines science communication within a public policy setting from the critical theory of structuralism. Employing Dr. Albert Einstein’s 1939 letter to U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt as an example, I argue that meaning is created as a function of structure rather than content.
