Upcoming talks at VCU and New York's AMNH
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."
On Thursday, Feb. 5, I will be at Virginia Commonwealth University giving a talk as part of the university's Science, Technology, and Society lecture series (details). It will be an updated and more polished version of the lecture I gave at the New York Academy of Sciences in December.
Then on Tues., Feb. 10 I will be in New York at the American Museum of Natural History participating in a stellar panel discussion on how the media covers climate change featuring Andrew Revkin of the NY Times, Bud Ward of the Yale Forum on Climate Change and the Media, Bill Blakemore of ABC News, and Diane Hawkins-Cox of CNN.
