Environmental Communication:
Research Into Practice

This course will help you to understand what's distinct about environmental communication and why it's not necessarily the same as other types of public interest or political communication. We'll consider the unique and difficult challenges of communicating well around environmental affairs and sustainability. We’ll explore why much environmental communication today is not as effective as it could be, and is all too often counter-productive. And we’ll give you the information and critical perspective you need to make better communication choices.

Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Environmental Communication

The Department of Communication at the University of Utah invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor in Environmental Communication, effective July 1, 2018. The strongest candidates will have a promising research record in Environmental Communication that complements the Department’s current foci in Environmental Communication and contributes to the CommSHER (Science, Health, Environmental, and Risk) area of emphasis more broadly. They will perform scholarship that increases knowledge of communication practices, have expertise in qualitative or rhetorical approaches to research, develop a national and international reputation for scholarship in Environmental Communication, and evince a broad awareness and appreciation of the discipline of Communication across the areas of research represented in the Department. Expertise in qualitative research methods is highly desirable, but other approaches will be considered. A focus on environmental justice is particularly valued, although many different foci areas are welcome, including environmental movements, climate change, international environmentalism, environmental protests and social media, public participation processes, more-than-human rhetorics, ecological media campaigns, and displaced communities.
