Denver, CO—On September 26, the National Communication Association (NCA) and the University of Colorado Denver’s Department of Communication will present a public program, “The Art of Science Communication.” This dynamic conversation will feature six communication and rhetoric scholars exploring the ways in which rhetoric about science circulates culturally and influences broader public discussions and understanding about science, journalism, and politics.

The program is one of several initiatives NCA has hosted, supported, or participated in to promote public understanding of science through communication. The September issue of NCA’s Spectra magazine also focuses on this topic.
