Pamela Perrimon is interested in environmental communication and the anthropocene. Her research lies in the ways in which scientific narratives are packaged and shared. She is interested in how we talk about biodiversity, Climate Change, nature, and why it matters. Her current research encompasses the intersection of action and memory with extinction and endangered species. She is also interested in questions of scientific literacy, institutional outreach, and accessibility in science and museum spaces.
She previously received an MA/MSc from the Global Communications joint program between USC and the London School of Economics where she conducted research on the semiotics of animation and the effects of rhetoric and storytelling in Cosmos. Pam also has an Anthropology focused MA in the Social Sciences from the University of Chicago and a BA in Anthropology and Theatre from Fairfield University.
Prior to joining the Annenberg doctoral community, she worked in formal and informal environmental education. Pam was the Education and Science Communications Manager on The Longest Swim, and both Mobile Museums Educator and AIN Camp facilitator with the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.
