Religion and Inclusive Science Communication
A webinar on Religion and Inclusive Science Communication, will take place on Wednesday, May 12 2021 at 4:30-6:30 PM Israel Daylight Time (GMT+3), 14:30-16:30 (BST); 9:30-11:30 (EST)
While calls for more inclusive science communication have primarily focused on race, gender and disability, this conversation draws our attention to science communication among religious minorities. Drawing on the case study of Haredi Jews in Israel, the goal of this webinar is to explore the range of challenges science communication poses for religious groups while highlighting the strategies science communicators use to diversify and tailor information to particular religious groups in real life settings.
Professor Bruce Lewenstein (Cornell University) will offer a fresh definition of “Inclusive Science Communication”, which will be followed by a summary of research findings from the Haredim and Science Communication research group, including: Professor Ayelet Baram-Tsabari, Yael Rosenblum and Dr. Lea Taragin-Zeller (Technion), Dr. Oren Golan, Nakhi Mishol-Shauli and Professor Yariv Tsfati (Haifa University). Responses and reflections will be offered by Dr. Ayala Fader (Fordham University) and Dr. David Rier (Bar Ilan University), which will be followed by a Q&A and discussion. Scholars and practitioners are welcomed to create a rich and robust discussion.
