EKU Anthropology students attended the annual DOPE+ 2024 conference to learn more about interdisciplinary research within environmental studies. DOPE (Dimensions of Political Ecology) is hosted by the Political Ecology Working Group, an interdisciplinary group of graduate students at the University of Kentucky. Since its inception in 2010, this student-organized conference has become one of the largest, most highly regarded international forums for critical discussions at the intersection of ecology, political economy, and science studies. 

EKU Anthropology Professor, Dr. Amanda Green, presented her ongoing research during the conference. Her presentation, entitled "Crisis planning and emergency alerts: How do publics perceive and use these systems," seeks to understand Madison County residents' perceptions and uses of emergency alert radios in collaboration with Madison County Emergency Management and EKU's emergency response teams.
