Writing for Change. Environmental Journalism Then and Now

Internationaler Workshop unter Leitung von Dr. Simone Müller (LMU) und Prof. Dr. Evi Zemanek (Freiburg).

28.01.2019 – 29.01.2019

Without any doubt, the news media have played and still play an important part in arousing public concern in environmental quality. At the same time, professionals have struggled with the challenge of how to tell stories about highly complex science and policy debates that unfold slowly in journals and meetings or how to address the uncertainty of long-term effects of pollution that may affect not their readers, but the next generation, people half-way around the globe or non-human beings. This interdisciplinary workshop explores the intricate and at points difficult relationships between the ecological beat in news reporting and the creation of environmental awareness from the late 20th century until today.

Teilnehmer sind u.a.: Beatrice Dernbach (TH Nürnberg), Ayelen Dichdji (National University of Quilmes), Rosalind Donald (Columbia University), David Heidenblad (Lund), Anna Mazanik (CEU Budapest), Mark Neuzil (University of St. Thomas), Doubravka Olšáková (Academy of Science of the Czech Republic), Wiebke Rögener (TU Dortmund), Torsten Schäfer (Hochschule Darmstadt), Nataša Simeunović Bajić (University of Nís), Anna Katharina Woebse (University of Gießen).

Keynote Lecture am 28. Januar um 16.30 Uhr:

Prof. Dr. Torsten Schäfer – "Climate Journalism – Ethical Dimension, Historical Context and Social Relevance of a New Key Discipline"

Torsten Schäfer ist Professor für Journalismus an der Hochschule Darmstadt.
