About me

David Judge is a Lecturer in the Science Communication Unit. His research focuses around the ways in which science is produced, communicated and understood in sites of informal science learning such as museums, galleries and science centres. He is particularly interested in the non-discursive aspects of communication, such as affect, embodiment, and atmosphere.

David's research also tries to unpick the production of science communication, exploring how the funding environment, increased professionalisation, and other factors influence the construction of publics and how science is communicated. His research draws on a wide range of methodological approaches including action research, grounded theory, and visual methods.

David's latest project, with We The Curious, explores the ethics of involving the public in real science in a visitor attraction.

David completed his PhD in Science Communication at UWE in 2022, with his thesis, titled "Transformative Visitor Experience in a Science Exhibition: Implications for science communication theory and practice."
