Janis Dickinson’s paper connecting Becker to the Environmental community generated a wonderfully positive response from the founder and projects director of COIN, a UK non-profit specializing in climate change communication. See this correspondence posted on July 29.
The fast-moving Internet is outdistancing print newsletters. We’d like to welcome print newsletter recipients to consider giving us their email address so we can update you more efficiently and inexpensively, without snail mail. And be Green.
Two worries I can think of re this transition:
(1) You worry we’ll fill your inbox. We won’t.
(2) I worry you might adopt the attitude that the Internet is free, and cut back on your support of the EBF. Please tell me you applaud this move as ecologically sound and you’ll increase your support.
Reis O'Brien has designed a short comic for the EBF. Reapy: The Littlest Harbinger of Death provides a brief introduction to The Denial of Death and how Becker is being used in social science research today.
This comic is great for students and adults alike. To download a pdf version click here.
