Byrne Seminar: Visual Communication of Science

TBA


Description

Fundamentally, science is communicated visually. Scientists prepare and present results through a variety of traditional tools such as figures and graphs, but science is also communicated to the public through images that often become iconic representations of scientific process, progress and imagination. This seminar will trace the history of visual science communications, introducing students to the imagery of science both within the scientific community and in public media. Starting with the earliest cave paintings through the Big Bang Theory, the course will touch on the trajectory of science visuals in paintings, science articles, newspapers, television, film, YouTube etc., tracing how science visuals are used by scientists and science communicators in the distant past, the recent past and into the future.
