The next seminar of the Fall 2022 series will happen on October 6, 2022, at 12-1 PM CT.

Prof. Bruno Takahashi (Michigan State University) will give a presentation entitled Broadening participation in environmental communication research: A Latin American perspective.” Register here.

Abstract: Climate change disproportionally affects countries in the Global South.  In this context, Dr. Bruno Takahashi discusses the extant research in environmental communication from and about Latin America. Latin American researchers have developed robust and unique contributions to the understanding of communication processes about the environment, some that can expand epistemic considerations in the Global North. Dr. Takahashi discusses strategies to overcome barriers to collaboration that could result in the consolidation of international environmental communication scholarship.

Dr. Bruno Takahashi is the Brandt Associate Professor of Environmental Communication in the School of Journalism at Michigan State University. He is also research director of the Knight Center for Environmental Journalism. Bruno is from Perú and studies environmental and science issues in Latin America and among marginalized US populations.

This event is co-sponsored by the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, the Buffett Institute for Global Affairs, the Center for Global Culture and Communication, the Department of Communication Studies, the Latina and Latino Studies Program, and the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program.
