Public Communication Research on the Pandemic
I’m supporting a new project at the School of Media and Communication at the University of Leeds, entitled ‘Communicating the Pandemic: Improving Public Communication and Understanding‘. The principle investigator is Professor Stephen Coleman, and co-investigator is Dr Giles Moss, working with Savanta ComRes, a survey research organization, as well as with me. The project is supported by a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
We are conducting weekly surveys of the general public in the UK. The questions address issues around how the public are using various media to understand the pandemic and the best approaches to protecting their health. I will add to this blog from time to time to up-date you on our progress, but I’d also invite anyone with a serious interest in this research to follow the project web site at: https://ahc.leeds.ac.uk/communicating_the_pandemic
