Jack's Father, Jacob, and the Lost Season Finale
Matthew C. Nisbet, Ph.D. is Associate Professor of Communication Studies, Public Policy, and Urban Affairs at Northeastern University. Nisbet studies the role of communication and advocacy in policymaking and public affairs, focusing on debates over over climate change, energy, and sustainability. Among awards and recognition, Nisbet has been a Visiting Shorenstein Fellow on Press, Politics, and Public Policy at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, a Health Policy Investigator at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and a Google Science Communication Fellow. In 2011, the editors at the journal Nature recommended Nisbet's research as “essential reading for anyone with a passing interest in the climate change debate,” and the New Republic highlighted his work as a “fascinating dissection of the shortcomings of climate activism."
It's the season finale for Lost tonight and the narrative threads are actually seeming to fit together. My only lingering question is where exactly Jack's father fits in the mysterious mosaic of the island. What do readers think?
Is Jack's father Jacob, as someone suggested to me the other day? Doubt it, but it seems we should find out more on this angle tonight.
