    • 1960 | Global Public Opinion About Climate Change with Professor Jennifer Marlon

      Jun 2
      3:00PM – 4:00PM
      Linsly-Chittenden Hall | Room: 102 — 63 High Street

      Earth’s climate has always changed. But this time, it’s different. Given the complexity of the issue, however, it isn’t surprising that people have very different ways of thinking about and responding to the problem. By surveying over 50,000 Americans during the past decade and the global public more recently, the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication (YPCCC) has identified six distinct audiences who perceive climate change, its seriousness and its solutions in very different ways. Understanding these differences and why they exist can help us have constructive conversations about the issue and to find common ground. 

      Jennifer Marlon is a Research Scientist at Yale’s School of the Environment (YSE) and leads the Data Science team at the YPCCC. She designed the interactive Yale Climate Opinion Maps, the SASSY (Six Americas) segmentation tool and quiz, the Climate Opinion Factsheets, the CCAM Explorer, and other tools for the YPCCC. Jenn co-teaches Environmental Data Visualization & Communication at YSE, and Climate Change to Yale undergraduates as part of Biology, the World, and Us. She holds a PhD and MS in Geography from the University of Oregon, and a BS from the University at Albany, State University of New York.

    • "A Quarrel in a Faraway Country...": "The End of History" Ends in Ukraine

      Jun 3
      9:00AM – 10:00AM
      Sheffield-Sterling-Strathcona Hall | Room: 114 — 1 Prospect Street

      Marci Shore, Associate Professor of History

      On 27 September 1938, as European leaders pursued negotiations in Munich surrounding Adolf Hitler's demand to annex the Sudetenland, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain addressed the British people. "How horrible, fantastic, incredible it is that we should be digging trenches and trying on gas masks here because of a quarrel in a far-away country between people of whom we know nothing," he said. In 2014 the Donbas became that faraway place. This lecture will address the uses and disadvantages of historical analogies, and explore how the fate of the world is now being decided in Ukraine.
