Laura Lindenfeld is a Professor in the Department of Communication & Journalism and the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center. Her work reflects the notion that how we communicate about the world fundamentally shapes our experience of it. Lindenfeld’s research seeks to advance our ability to collaborate across different institutions in ways that promote a more sustainable future for people and for the planet. Her work investigates how researchers, communities, stakeholders, and decision makers can work together more effectively to advance effective collaboration and change. She also has produced a body of scholarship focused on the relationship among food, media, identity, and cultural citizenship. Her work has appeared in such journals as Sustainability Science, Sustainability, Environmental Communication: A Journal of Nature and Culture, Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies, Text & Performance Quarterly, Food & Foodways, and the Journal of International and Intercultural Communication.
