CapSciComm colleague José G. González (@JoseBilingue) will be delivering a guest lecture on ecological science communication, as part of the Fall 2013 Geology-Ecology Colloquium series at Sacramento State University.
Text from the email announcement:
“Connecting Ecological Knowledge with Cultural Context”
Ecology is literally “the study of home”, and oftentimes, local communities and cultures have intimate understandings and unique contexts with their immediate environment — ones that outsiders may miss.
This presentation will discuss the importance of understanding cultural contexts in the course of ecological research and outreach, both for communicating ecological sciences to new audiences and for connecting with the ecological insights of local communities.
The talk will be on Tuesday, November 12, at Mendocino Hall 1015 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., with a mixer in Placer Hall immediately following until 6:00 p.m. The lecture is free to the public.
