Candis Callison joined the graduate School of Journalism at the University of British Columbia as an Assistant Professor in 2010. Candis received her Ph.D. from the Doctoral Program in History, Anthropology, and Science, Technology, and Society at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2010.
Her book, How Climate Change Comes to Matter, (Duke University Press), is due out in December 2014. It is based on her doctoral research that looks at the communication of climate change to Americans through a comparative lens that brings together the work of science journalists, scientists, and three distinct social groups that are outside the environmental movement and policy frameworks. Prior to undertaking doctoral studies, Candis received a Master of Science in the Comparative Media Studies Program at MIT.
