The Structure of Scientific Communication

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.
