Grit City Think & Drink: FRAMING INJUSTICE: HOW THE MEDIA COVERED THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE AND WHY IT MATTERS

February 12, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

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.
