SciComm Speaker Series: Emotion, humor, and the science of science communication

Sara Yeo

Time: 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Location: Foster Auditorium - Paterno Library

It is easier than ever to get information on any topic on the internet. Yet, divided information environments have created a world that allows us to live in our own filter bubbles and echo chambers in which identical scientific information may have different meanings to different audiences. What are the effects of these novel news environments on science and scientists? Why are we as a country less equipped than ever to debate controversial issues with each other in a civil fashion? This talk will explore research in the science of science communication that tells us about causes and possible solutions. Sara Yeo is an assistant professor of communication at the University of Utah. She is a faculty affiliate of the Environmental Humanities and Global Change and Sustainability Center.
