Graduate Pursuit: Power of the pen: constructing social-ecological narratives of coral reefs in news media and links to policy action

 

Power of the pen: constructing social-ecological narratives of coral reefs in news media and links to policy action

We propose integrating three case studies from around the world into a conservation culturomics approach. We will synthesize long-term reef monitoring data, a corpus of thousands of local and global media articles, and policy and management actions into a single analytical framework to assess direct and indirect linkages that may influence conservation efforts in unexpected ways.

SESYNC Invites Proposals for Collaborative & Interdisciplinary Team-Based Research Projects

Applications for both Pursuits and Workshops are due May 15, 2019 at 5pm ET.

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) requests proposals for collaborative and interdisciplinary team-based research projects under two programs: Pursuits and Workshops.

From Ivory Tower to Prison Tower

 

Using trees and environmental science as a backdrop, forest ecologist finds synergy with those excluded from science—and society.

History Holds Key

When using the archeological past to examine sustainability, humans provide key functions in environments they inhabit.

The absence of humans in a landscape can have dramatic effects. Removing them from ecosystems can allow forests to advance, for example, but it can also cause human-dependent species to become extinct.

Summer Institute on Cyberinfrastructure for Socio-Environmental Synthesis

 

"Summer Institute on Cyberinfrastructure for Socio-Environmental Synthesis"

This is a closed meeting for a funded group of visiting scholars.

The short course will combine lectures, hands-on computer labs, and project consultation designed to accelerate the adoption of cyber resources for all phases of data-driven research and dissemination.

Syllabus

Pursuit: Linked socio-environmental responses to destructive wildfire: Are wildfires ‘hot moments’ for transformative adaptation?

 

"Linked socio-environmental responses to destructive wildfire: Are wildfires ‘hot moments’ for transformative adaptation?"

This Pursuit will convene an interdisciplinary team of researchers, in social and natural sciences, and examine national-level data sets to: (1) Assess social response to wildfire and possible adaptation or entrenchment through an inventory of housing change (rebuilding, sales, newdevelopment, land subdivision); (2) Investigate howsocial and ecological settings and impactsinfluence housing
