Science History Institute, 315 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia

Event Description

Climate change is a global issue that requires new technologies, new economic policies, and new production and consumption practices. But it also requires a better understanding of the past and how decades of detrimental decisions and resulting emissions have shaped our current environmental crisis. The panel will discuss the similarities, differences, and potential conflicts between journalistic and academic accounts of the past. What can they learn from each other about sources, narratives, audiences, and research ethics? And how can they better inform and engage their publics?
