With apologies for cross-posting

PCST network is collecting information about PhD theses completed since
2000 on topics in science communication and closely related areas. This
information, with a classification by topic area and country, will be
published on the web site, pcstacademy.org, and a review will be
presented at PCST11 conference in 2010.

This exercise is intended to provide an overview of current and recent
research in the growing field of science communication that will support
those starting in the field. It is also intended to promote networking
between researchers in science communication.

Information is sought on doctoral theses that addressed mainly or
exclusively topics such as science in media, public communication by
scientists and scientific institutions, history of popularisation,
science museu ms and science centres, science festivals and events,
public consultation in science-related policy, risk communication on
science-related issues, and so on.

For each thesis we seek the following details:

Title; author; affiliation (university or similar); date of completion;
supervisor(s); examiner(s); abstract (approx 250 words); where
accessible (online or print).

Brian Trench of Dublin City University (Ireland) and the PCST network
scientific committee and Maarten van der Sanden of Delft University of
Technology (Netherlands) are leading this project. Summaries of theses,
as outlined, should be sent by 1 October to M.C.A.vanderSanden at tudelft.nl

An example of a completed summary can be had from Maarten at this email
address and further information on this project can be had from Maarten
or from brian.trench at dcu.ie

This message is sent to mailing lists concerned wit h science
communication. If you receive this message and know of a researcher or
thesis supervisor to whom it might be relevant, please pass it on.

Thank you.
