Abstract

Paper examines the public representation of nanoscale science and technology in North American written popular media from 1986-2000. The paper first examines the concepts through which nanoscale science was first represented in the public media, and then goes on look at how early public accounts of nanotechnology use narrative to depict nanoscale science and technology within the following specific topic codes; social context, method or how the research was conducted, Theory/agent or why effects occurred, data/statistics or what was observed in the study, related research, and relevance or the importance or acceptability of findings.
