Hanna E. Morris, a first-year doctoral student at Penn’s Annenberg School, is the recipient of the 2017 New Directions for Climate Communication Research Fellowship, jointly awarded by the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR) and the International Environmental Communication Association (IECA).

The fellowship is awarded biennially to an IAMCR member for an outstanding and innovative research proposal. Ms. Morris’ proposal,  Painting with Light: Climate Change and the Photographic Imaginary, focuses on the effort by a small group of photographers to represent the reality of climate change. She will interview six photographers from around the world and conduct a visual ethnography of their digital and on-site photographic exhibitions.
