Environmental Studies Seminar: Meghnaa Tallapragada
In this talk, based on recently published research, Dr. Tallapragada will outline three projects focused on communicating about pressing environmental issues to inspire positive change among children and adults. The first project involves an interdisciplinary STEAM project titled Something Very Fishy that tested science communication efforts to transform perceptions of ocean conservation and climate change among elementary school students, their teachers, and undergraduate students. The second project includes results pertaining to the power of conversion narratives and of messages connecting a more polarized topic with a lesser one on public perceptions of genetically modified organisms. The third project shows the negative consequences of aggressive message frames and media consumption on attitudes towards scientists.
