Popularizing the Humanities vs. the Natural Sciences

Hearing about research advances in medicine, biology, or physics in public discourse is a common occurrence.

Physicists, linguists, sociologists, science communicators, and journalists discussed this question on the eve of the Day of Russian Science at the Total Dictation Conference in Moscow.
