Astrid Schulz is a research assistant at the Chair of Technology and Society in the DiPubHealth project since July 2021. It investigates the specific dynamics of public discourses in the field of public health. Based on the increasing fragmentation and polarisation of public discourses, Astrid Schulz is primarily concerned with the conditions of how knowledge is constructed and negotiated in public debates and with the way discursive fields are structured. The findings will be incorporated into the conception and development of science communication formats.
