Abstract: The recent APSA Task Force on Improving Public Perceptions of Political Science’s Value (2014) recognizes that public engagement by political scientists is required so that our “insights and discoveries [are] more accessible, more relevant, and more valuable to more people” (2). However, we argue in this paper that public engagement is fraught with potential risks that the report only mentions briefly or ignores completely, particularly for women and minority groups. We use several case studies of public engagement efforts to illustrate some of the risks associated especially with scholarship by and about traditionally marginalized groups. We argue that institutional support for public engagement and the principles of academic freedom are not always uniformly or fairly applied. We assert also that while the traditional media gatekeepers restrict access to certain kinds of experts and certain kinds of subjects, new media may not be a panacea. While non-traditional forms of media may provide access not previously experienced, they also create limitations and other risks resulting from sharing one’s scholarly findings, especially for representatives of marginalized groups.
