AbstractIn this article providing commentary for Laurent's article in the same journal issue, the author discusses concerns that conflicting motivations have led to confusion about what engagement means to those who mediate science and publics. This raises important but unexplored questions regarding how publics are constituted by different forms of engagement used by intermediary scholars and other actors.
