¿Cómo SciWri?

As our nation’s cultural voices evolve, how do we as science writers adjust our craft to connect with today’s bicultural and bilingual audiences?

Using the U.S. Latino and Hispanic experience as a focusing lens, our ScienceWriters2016 and ScienceWriters2018 sessions explored the nuances and approaches journalists and PIOs can consider to better communicate science in the United States — no matter what our audience’s cultural context might be.

In 2019, we compiled the insights and curriculum content from both CómoSciWri sessions into a single manuscript for consideration in the special journal collection «Inclusive Science Communication in Theory and Practice» curated by Erika Check Hayden, Mónica Feliú-Mójer, Raychelle Burks, and Thomas Hayden for Frontiers in Communication. The manuscript was peer-reviewed by Feliú-Mójer, Ana M. Porras, and Ivan Fernando Gonzalez Tobón, and published on February 27, 2020. The article is available via open access:
