Hans Peter Peters
As a social scientist at the Research Center Jülich, Germany, and Adjunct Professor at the Free University of Berlin, I am interested in:
Public communication of science, technology & scientific expertise
Scientists as public experts
Interactions of scientists and journalists
Reception and effects of mass media coverage of science and technology
Political effects of public science communication: use of expertise, legitimacy of research and science governance
Cross-cultural analysis of public communication and public sense-making
Social contexts of the neurosciences.
This website serves to distribute information for my students, to inform about my current research, and to provide access to selected publications. Furthermore it aims to establish my existence in the global web community.
