Pollution and Health in China: Important Research Projects, Findings, and Research Methods

October 16, 2014 - 12:15-14:00

East Asian Lunch Seminar with Bryan Tilt, Oregon State University. The seminar starts with a short introduction by Mette Halskov Hansen to the interdisciplinary research project Airborne: Pollution, Climate Change and New Visions of Sustainability in China. 
 
This presentation is divided into three parts. In the first part, Professor Tilt will provide an overview of recent research on the environment and health in China and the challenges China faces as it balances rapid economic growth and environmental protection. In the second part, he will describe some of his recent research on industrial pollution and its health effects. A major focus of this research is on risk perception – how people perceive and understand the health risks from pollution. In the third part, Professor Tilt will share some practical lessons about research methods, and suggest that we need to think about these issues from an interdisciplinary perspective across the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities.
 
The seminar is open for everybody: students, teachers and people from society at large. Bring your lunchbox.
Time: Oct 16, 2014 12:15 PM – 02:00 PM
