Finding Common ground: Identities, Communication, and Environmental Attitudes in Rural America

Rural Americans play an important role in environmental conservation.  Rural communities sit on the front lines of environmental change, while our political structure gives them an outsized voice in policymaking. Despite this importance, rural communities receive little attention from those studying political attitudes and environmental communication. In this lecture, Emily Diamond explores how rural identities inform unique perspectives on environmental policy and how communication strategies can engage rural Americans more effectively on environmental conservation issues.

Emily Diamond is Assistant Professor of Communication Studies and Marine Affairs at URI.

This Harrington Forum Event is cosponsored by the College of the Environment and Life Sciences.
