Environmental Communication Division
Graduate Student Pre-conference
ICA 2018, Prague, Czech Republic
Date: May 24, 2018 | Time: 9am-12pm | Location: TBA
The Environmental Communication Division Graduate Student Pre-conference will bring together students working in environmental communication and similar fields with experienced scholars. We invite graduate students, post-docs and other researchers who work in topics related to the environment, science, natural resources, and sustainability to submit their work. Our goals for this half day pre-conference are to provide a forum to connect with other scholars, gather feedback on research projects, and receive advice pertaining to early career success from leading experts in the field. We hope you’ll join us for the inaugural Environmental Communication Division Graduate Student Pre-conference at the 2018 ICA conference.
The morning will start with short presentations and a poster session in small group settings. Each group will include, in addition to fellow graduate students and researchers, leading scholars in the field of environmental communication. Presenters will receive feedback from peers, colleagues, and faculty on research projects at any stage in their development. After a networking coffee break, the invited scholars will share insights regarding career opportunities, publishing, and future directions of environmental communication research.
