“The Complex Relationship Between Climate Change Beliefs and Sustainable Behavior”

Neil Lewis, Jr. is Assistant Professor of Communication and Social Behavior at Cornell University, where he is also a Faculty Affiliate of the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research and Cornell Center for the Study of Inequality. He earned his BA in Economics and Psychology at Cornell University, and his MS and PhD in Social Psychology at the University of Michigan. Lewis’s research examines the interplay between identity and social contexts and its influence on people’s motivation to pursue education, health, and environmental goals. This research has been published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Psychological Science, Journal of Environmental Psychology, and elsewhere, and has been featured in public outlets such as The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and The Atlantic. Lewis is co-editing a special issue of the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, and is on the editorial board of Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy.

This event is part of the Duck Family Colloquium series. 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.
