TOPIC: Tobacco Control: A sticky, complex, problem
Tobacco is the number one preventable cause of death in the United States. However, the structural, interpersonal and personal factors that contribute to tobacco use are complex and require integration of a variety of methodological approaches and expertise across disciplines. In this talk, I will discuss how in my work I apply variety of conceptual and operational approaches, utilizing skills from interdisciplinary teams, to help tackle this public health problem.
The Michigan State University Center for Interdisciplinarity (C4I) advances interdisciplinary research and pedagogy at the University while preparing the next generation of citizen leaders to address the most challenging questions of our time. In addition to conducting original research on interdisciplinary process and practice, it serves as an advocate for researchers and scholars, consulting with teams, providing resources for and about interdisciplinarity, and creating opportunities for training, education, networking, mentorship, visibility, and funding both on and off-campus.

Science as Experience: A New Approach to Science Communication
Megan Halpern draws on Dewey’s theory of aesthetic experience to develop a model that can reshape how we research, practice, and evaluate science communication. Drawing on her work in art-science collaboration and design-inspired public engagement with science and technology, Halpern illustrates three principles of her model. First, experiences are cumulative rather than transformative, second, that context shapes experiences; and third, that ultimately, audiences have agency in shaping the meanings they draw from their interactions with scientific content. Finally, Halpern offers insights into how to develop projects from an experience perspective.
Coffee and Cookies provided.
Plan to stay after the lecture for additional coffee and networking time.
