The Politics of Science

The April essay dialogue focuses on the intersection of social movements, the political sphere, and science. Social movements addressing issues as diverse as climate change, public school curricula, nutrition, and agriculture are increasingly connected to the field of science, so we invited contributors to reflect on the influence of science (and scientists) within the field of social movements as well as the ways  in which politics and movements shape the institutional field of science and technology.  Our contributors include both social scientists and scientists working in advocacy roles. We thank our group of distinguished contributors (below) as well as Kathleen Oberlin and Matthew Baggetta for helpful insights during the planning stages of this essay dialogue.
