This podcast is a recording of a guest lecture given by journalism scholar Rosalind Donald at the University of Oregon. In her talk, Rosalind discusses how journalists in Miami are reporting on climate change in a way that brings in concerns such as health, real estate, financial markets and social justice. She’ll discuss how to integrate climate change into health, business, real estate, arts and science and environmental coverage, regardless of scientific expertise--and why it’s important.

Rosalind Donald is a PhD candidate in Communications at Columbia University. She researches community understanding of climate change in Miami, focusing on the way the city’s politics, infrastructure, and environment influence the way climate change is interpreted in policy and popular imagination. Alongside her research, she has also taught media studies methods and production at NYU. Before she moved to the U.S, she was deputy editor of Carbon Brief, a fact‐checking website focused on climate science and policy in the media.
