Abstract: In this study, participants view representations of science from television programs and categorize the show's characters as "scientists" or not. Follow-up interviews reveal that when thinking about the science and knowledge claims in the television shows, participants adopt one of two views about scientists: either "process-dominant" (scientists as people who investigate claims using some process) or "persona-dominant" (scientists as people who have a specific look, demeanor and credentials).
