4 Acknowle dgements It is hard to remember where the idea for this book first came from. We have worked together for some time, and our conversations have often been filled with aspects of science communication that we were excited about, questions that we did not know the answers to, and fascination with the way that the field of science communication is developing. Eventually, those conversations solidified into the idea of writing a book that explored some of the approaches to thinking about science communication we found particularly interesting. Together we worked through different topics, concepts, theoretical lenses, and methodological angles that we thought might open up the study of science communication. The result is what you find in this book. It is much easier to think of all the people who have helped us as we did this. Brian Trench, Kristian H Nielsen, Alan Irwin, Majken Schultz, and an anonymous reviewer gave us extremely valuable comments on the first draft of this manuscript. A group of science communication researchers were kind enough to join us at a workshop in Copenhagen, in part to talk about some of this work: we are grateful to Massimiano Bucchi, Anne Dijkstra, Jane Gregory, Karen Bultitude, Simon Lock, Miira Hill, Felicity Mellor, Jon Mendel, Hauke Riesch, Dorothea Born, Erik Stengler, Nina Amelung, Kasper Ostrowski, Megan Halpern, Britt Wray, Göde Both, Kjetil Sandvik, and Dehlia Hannah for their participation and their comments on our work. We have had many other informal conversations v

5 vi Acknowledgements about these topics with other scholars, professional communicators, and students, and would like to thank the originators of comments that particularly hit home: Ulrike Felt, Andy Stirling, Dorothea Born, Mike Michael, Cecilie Glerup, Birte Dalsgaard, Jasper Steen Winkel, Louise Whiteley, Adam Bencard, and Birger Lindberg Møller. At least some of the good advice we were given we did not take, in part because the text has been a rapidly shifting beast. The omissions, errors, and failings remain our own. We also thank the team at Palgrave for their help throughout the process, and particularly Holly Tyler and Dominic Walker. Some of our writing time was funded by a European Commission Marie Curie grant; without that support, this book would not have been possible. The University of Copenhagen funded a productive collaboration with a group of synthetic biologists, while a fellowship from the Brocher Foundation provided us with a month of seclusion and a beautiful working environment. Several of the chapters were drafted during our stay at their villa in Geneva. Finally, Maja thanks Alan Irwin for making her laugh and for demonstrating that it is possible to do research while holding a full-time management position, while Sarah thanks Raffael Himmelsbach for a steady supply of support and good food. We also want to thank each other. We are still talking, and still like working with each other. After some 80,000 words that seems achievement enough.
