Obszary tematyczne

We invite scholars of various fields to present their take on the popcultural life of science: examples, consequences and side effects of popularisation of scientific knowledge through weird tales, strange fictions and stories of wonder. The seminar is intended as a workshop and speakers are to submit their papers beforehand. During the seminar, each speaker briefly summarises the main points of their work; afterwards, all the participants are invited to take part in a discussion.

Among the specific themes that might be covered in ten-minute long presentations are the following (the list is by no means exhaustive):

• popcultural representations of science and scientists
• scientification of popculture versus “popculturing” of science – mechanisms, processes, consequences and side effects
• relationships between scientific and popcultural discourses
• how to “science” in the age of Instagram – popularity, money and responsibility
• tale of science or tale of wonder?
• “get fact” – science in the service of clicks
• popcultural narratives of scientific problems – scientific facts or myths
• mythbusting – demystifying and remystifying science in popculture
• popculture as new mythology of science
• mythos, pathos and logos in the stories of science
• funification of science
• popcultural functions of science
• popculture as science/science as popculture
• popcultural contributions to science

We welcome scholars from various academic fields to submit their proposals by 9 February 2020. Abstracts (no more than 150 words) should be emailed to hstory.seminar@gmail.com. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out by 12 February 2020. Further deadline and editorial details on submitting texts prior to the seminar will follow.
