Grit City Think & Drink: Framing Injustice: How the Media Covered The Dakota Access Pipeline and Why It Matters


How do the media cover environmental justice movements and why does it matter? To answer these questions, Dr. Ellen Moore will be discussing her work with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe on the media coverage of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The talk includes discussion of the Dakota Access Pipeline controversy and the media coverage of the #NODAPL movement that emerged in 2016 and 2017. Here, Ellen will present the results of her framing analysis of the large media outlets that covered the movement, and also will describe her work with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to reveal their perceptions of the pipeline, the media, politics, and social movements. Ellen Moore teaches and conducts research on the relationship between media and environmental issues, focusing in particular on environmental justice, at UW Tacoma. Her first book, "Green Screen," examined how Hollywood represents environmental disasters in different genres of film; her second book, "Framing Injustice," explores the ways in which the mainstream media covered the #NODAPL movement by drawing in politics, history, and social movements. She lives in Tacoma with her husband and two Marvel dogs Loki and Groot.

Grit City Think & Drink | Life Finds A Way: Evolution in Cities


Cities are the fastest growing ecosystem on Earth. Coincidentally, many wildlife face anthropogenic pressures they have not traditionally encountered in their evolutionary history. Many species faced with such selective pressures are detrimentally affected, whereas others thrive in urban environments. In this talk UW Tacoma's Christopher Schell will explore the emergence of a field – urban evolutionary biology – and how humans are the essential drivers and arbiters of this composite, yet wholly unique, ecosystem. In addition, Dr. Schell will detail the varied work beginning in the Tacoma, Olympia, and Seattle areas that blend research with community engagement in a novel way. Such research endeavors not only illuminate the processes by which wildlife respond to people, but also highlights the integral and far-reaching roles we play. Chris Schell is an Assistant Professor in the Science and Mathematics Division at UW Tacoma. His research asks the fundamental question: how are wildlife adapting to life in cities? He approaches this question using multiple techniques (e.g., animal behavior, endocrinology, camera trap analysis) to reframe what we consider “nature”. Chris is originally from Los Angeles, finished his undergrad in Psychology at Columbia University (2005), his doctoral work in Evolutionary Biology at the University of Chicago (2015), and most recently finished his postdoctoral work at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. He primarily works on personality differences in coyotes, raccoons, and foxes – all of which have interesting biological and cultural touchpoints for people across the country. Hence, his work represents a bridge among seemingly disparate fields – social work, environmental justice, law, ecology, and psychology – to connect people and instill pride in the health and viability of our urban ecosystems.
