Michael S. Evans
I am a postdoctoral Neukom Fellow in the Neukom Institute at Dartmouth College, where I am affiliated with the Department of Film & Media Studies and the Department of Sociology. I received my PhD in sociology from the University of California, San Diego through the interdisciplinary Science Studies Program.
I study communication and conflict in American public life. Most of my work so far has examined various public intersections of science, religion, media and politics. Currently I am investigating how and why science communication contributes to public conflict. I am also developing novel methods that use computation to expand the scope of qualitative research. My Google Scholar profile provides a list of publications.
At UCSD I designed and taught courses in science, technology & society, American religion, and the social and political history of American health care. At Dartmouth I will be teaching Science and Religion in American Media (FILM46/SOCY49.13).
