Public Lecture: The Anthropocene Media Project
Public Lecture with Professor Leslie Sklair, 'The Anthropocene Media Project. Mass Media on Human Impacts on the Earth System'.
Leslie Sklair is Professor Emeritus at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
He is currently working on The Anthropocene Media Project, an on-going research project on how the Anthropocene (the geological concept created to measure and name human impacts on the Earth System) is represented in the mass media in local languages all over the world.
So far, data has been collected from online searches of newspapers, magazines and other news media websites from around 100 countries/regions by about 50 volunteer researchers.
The data is being analyzed by years of publication, numbers and types of articles. The paper concludes with some observations on the role and responsibility of the mass media in interpreting science for various publics.
