Research director Bruno Takahashi has co-edited a special section of the International Journal of Communication.
The special section, titled “Climate and Sustainability Communication Campaigns,” was co-edited with Lucy Atkinson from the University of Texas-Austin, and Merav Katz-Kimchi, from the School of Sustainability, IDC, Israel. The special section includes articles from scholars from different communication subdisciplines, and from various methodological vantage points that examine the current state of, and the prospects for, climate and sustainability communication campaigns.
This special section grew out of a postconference cosponsored by the Environmental Communication, Health Communication, and Political Communication divisions at the 2015 International Communication Association meeting in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Dr. Takahashi is currently the chair of the Environmental Communication Division.
One of the articles, “The Roles of Social Media in Promoting Sustainability in Higher Education,” was co-authored by Takahashi and Dr. Serena Carpenter, assistant professor in the School of Journalism at MSU, along with Ph.D graduate, Carie Cunningham (now assistant professor at Duquesne University), and Ph.D student Alisa P. Lertpratchya.
