Prof. Dr. Michael Brüggemann
Communication Studies, Climate and Science Communication
Dr Michael Brüggemann started his research and teaching at the Faculty of Business, Economics and Social Sciences in February 2015. His area of expertise is the study of journalism, political communication and science communication from a comparative and international perspective.He explores how journalists cover issues such as climate change and how these practices change. He also seeks to explain why they do so, by looking e.g. at media systems, editorial policies and cultures of journalism. More recent research focusses on the changing roles of journalists and scientists in science communication.
He is Principal Investigator at the Cluster of Excellence CliSAP at the Universität Hamburg and directs the Research Group "CRG Media Constructions of Climate Change"., He is engaged in interdisciplinary exchange in the context of the Center for Earth System Research and Sustainability (CEN), the Centre for Globalisation and Governance (CGG) and the Research Center for Media and Communication (RCMC).
