Emily VragaEmily Vraga, George Mason University

Emily K. Vraga is an assistant professor in the Department of Communication at George Mason University, where she is the Political Communication Minor Director. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Mass Communications in 2011. Her research focuses on how individuals respond to news and information about contentious political, scientific, and health issues, particularly when they encounter disagreement with their views via digital media. She is especially interested in testing methods to limit biased processing and misinformation and to encourage attention to more diverse content online.

The Center for Environmental Politics organizes a monthly colloquium series on environmental politics, policy, and governance. This series is made possible by the generous support of Gary and Susan Duck, UW alumni and long-standing benefactors of the department. Susan passed away in December 2015 after a prolonged illness. We miss her a lot.
