"Urban ecologies of vulnerability and risk: What is the role of fish consumption advisories?"
This is a closed meeting for a funded group of visiting scholars.
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.
When: June 24-28, 2019
Where: The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC), Annapolis, Maryland.
