Lauren Feldman: Communicating Hope and Fear in a Context of Climate Emergency

1:15 PM, Friday 4 Jun 2021 EDT (1 hour 15 minutes)
Scholars, journalists, and activists continue to debate the role of emotional messaging in climate change communication. This talk will consider existing theory and research on the role of emotions, especially fear and hope, in public engagement and activism around climate change. Particular attention will be paid to how media, including both news and entertainment, evoke emotions about climate change, with the potential to both activate and alienate publics.
