Dangerous Landscapes: Legacies of Nineteenth-Century Progress in the age of Climate Change employs social scientific survey tools to assess whether the juxtaposition of contemporary landscape photographs with nineteenth-century landscape illustrations can change public perceptions of the environment and climate change.  

This research project is supported by the 2020 Joint Pilot for Arts Research (JPAR). This JPAR is co-sponsored by the Collaborative Arts Research Initiative (CARI), the Alabama Life Research Institute (ALRI), and the Office for Research and Economic Development (ORED) and supports proposals that integrate the arts with bio-psychosocial investigations of the human condition.
