Dr. Roy Scranton, "Killing the Messenger: Challenges in Climate Change Communication", Working Wednesdays



book cover for Learning to Die in the Anthropocene

Climate change has been called "the largest science communication failure in history." What makes climate change so hard to talk about? And how can we do it better?


Roy Scranton is the author of five books, including LEARNING TO DIE IN THE ANTHROPOCENE and WE'RE DOOMED. NOW WHAT? He is an Associate Professor of English at the University of Notre Dame, where he directs the Environmental Humanities Initiative.

PPEH offers a lunch series, Working Wednesdays, designed to showcase in-progress Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) straddling theoretical and practical environmental concerns. These sessions take place on Wednesdays, 12:30-1:30 sharp.

All sessions are open to the Penn community but require RSVP. Grab a lunch and join us on Zoom!
