"Classroom + Community: UofL Students Serve as 'Air Justice' Change Agents"
The Department of Geographic And Environmental Sciences Seminar Series will feature Dr. Megan Poole, UofL assistant professor of English.
Dr. Poole's interdisciplinary research and teaching centers on rhetorical theory, science studies, and technical writing, particularly focusing on how the biology of sensation informs and shapes theories of rhetoric.
Dr. Poole is also part of the Public Health Literacy Group, a coalition of community leaders, grassroots activists, and academic scholars focused on making the science of air pollution more accessible for constituents in District 3, an area that borders Rubbertown. In 2021, the Public Health Literacy Group was awarded a $250,000 Community Partners Program grant from The Humana Foundation.
