This issue provides a collection of critical cultural perspectives on popularising science. Many cultural studies scholars use science studies, science and technology studies and feminist science studies in our work. This issue offers critical cultural studies, communication and media studies perspectives specifically on the dissemination of science. Instead of exploring the ways that science is communicated to the general public, this issue will explore how mediation is intrinsic to the core practices of science, and the ways in which popular genres feed back into scientific institutions and disciplines.
