Beyond the Lab is a blog of social science perspectives on climate change. The blog is associated with the University of Minnesota’s Compon project. The Compon Project is a cross-national research project focused on the societal and cultural roots that affect national responses to climate change. The blog’s focus is primarily an analysis of media coverage, societal reactions/opinions, governmental responses, and other related topics. The blog draws on debates and ideas being raised within academic circles, debates and ideas which are not generally well-known by the public. The hope is to make the public more aware of these topics.
Beyond the Lab is researched and written by Megan Sutherland. Megan has a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing from Lancaster University (UK) and has worked for several years in the nonprofit sector. She can be contacted at megan(dot)a(dot)sutherland(at)gmail(dot)com
