Joseph Henderson & Andrea Drewes: "Teaching Climate Change in the United States" book

Abstract: Drs. Henderson and Drewes will present an emerging edited book project that focuses on how various groups are teaching climate change in the United States political context. We will discuss the origins of this accepted book project, our framing principles, and current chapter participants to solicit feedback from the CLEAN Network with the goal of informing the final product as we wrap up this summer. We look forward to engaging you in conversation.
