The Conversation Workshop, Part II

  • All Day
  • Communicating Scholarship to PublicSpecial Events

    Independent and not-for-profit, The Conversation US is part of a global network of newsrooms first launched in Australia in 2011. Its mission is particularly resonant in the U.S., where people universally sense that the country’s social fabric is strained and the common ground people share is shrinking. Information always has been essential to democracy – a societal good, like clean water. But many now find it difficult to put their trust in the media. And with little consensus about what to believe, it only becomes harder to reach agreement with fellow citizens regarding what’s truthful.


    The Conversation’s editorial process is deliberate and collaborative. Editors pay close attention to the news environment to identify the issues citizens are concerned about. They reach out to leading scholars across academia and work with them to unlock their knowledge for the broad public. Iowa State University is a partner institution with The Conversation, and that means our scientists have the opportunity to write articles in their fields that may be read by tens of thousands.
