Personal Statement: 

JENNIFER GOOD is an Associate Professor of Communication, Popular Culture, and Film at Brock University (St. Catharines, Canada)

Jennifer Good’s research and teaching interests sit at the intersections between the mediated communication, materialism and our relationship with the natural environment. She has published articles exploring the communication and framing of climate change, the role of the Internet in environmental communication/awareness and the relationship between television viewing and the environment.  Good’s book Television and the Earth: Not a Love Story was published in 2013.  Her current research includes two funded projects: one, an updated environmental content analysis of prime-time television; the other, interviews with advertisers and environmental activists about their use of digital media.  She is also working on a book, with accompanying media/economic literacy toolkit, that explores social and environmental justice related to the lifecycle of new information and communication technologies.

Good has a B.A. in International Relations from the University of British Columbia, a Master’s degree in Environmental Studies from York University and a Ph.D. in Communication from Cornell University.
