Thoughts on Story in Film #climatechange #scicomm

Storified by Paige Brown · Tue, Apr 12 2016 19:55:47

In our #LSUStories Digital Storytelling class at LSU this semester, we are learning about storytelling across digital platforms. Today we watched Beasts of the Southern Wild, and students tweeted out their thoughts about the film, its use of narrative and storytelling devices. We will continue our discussion later this week!

<![CDATA[Science Bloggers: How to Break out of your Echo Chamber]]>

Can/do science blogs reach a "general" audience?

Storified by Paige Brown · Fri, Oct 09 2015 03:12:19

As I'm ramping up to survey science blog readers for my postdoc work, I've been thinking of some of the implications of finding out more about our readers. For one, by knowing the backgrounds and science media interests of a blog's readers, we can roughly determine whether that blog is talking to a like-minded or primarily already-science-invested audience, or whether the blog is reaching beyond this niche into a "general audience."
So what characteristics might help a science blog attract a diverse audience, vs. catering to an audience that is already highly science literate (or even as narrow as other scientists)?
