Enhancing Public Understanding of Science

Metcalf Institute’s Public Lectures

Metcalf Institute’s public lectures and film screenings focus on a wide range of science, environmental and public policy topics. The Annual Public Lecture Series held in June brings top scientists, journalists, and policy experts to the University of Rhode Island to talk about current issues in environmental research, media coverage, and how science influences public policy. The lectures, held at the University of Rhode Island, run concurrently with the Annual Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists. You can also view Metcalf Institute webinars on a wide range of climate science and policy topics.

All lectures and webinars are free and open to the public.

Upcoming Programs

Documentary Film Screening: Can We Talk? Difficult Conversations with Underrepresented People of Color: Sense of Belonging and Obstacles in STEM Fields
September 27, 2018
5:00-6:30 p.m.
URI Beaupre Center for Chemical Forensic Sciences

The film, part of the #InclusiveSciComm Symposium, looks at various obstacles and impediments–structural, cultural, psychological, and institutional–that effectively limit the inclusion and participation of underrepresented people of color in STEM fields. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion led by filmmaker Kendall Moore, professor of film production and multimedia reporting in the URI Harrington School of Communications and Media and a Metcalf Institute Advisory Board member. Registration is required.
