Shark Week is the biggest platform marine & conservation biology gets; however, it has been criticized over the years for
misrepresenting sharks, shark science, and the people behind shark science. Dr. Whitenack will talk about her and her colleagues’ project watching 201 episodes 
of Shark Week, documenting everything from which sharks and experts were featured to the messaging in each episode. Dr. Whitenack’s research has recently been featured in Popular Science and NOVA, and she also has appeared on Shark Week.

 

Masks are required for audience members attending this event in person. 

 

If you are unable to attend in person, you may register here to attend via Zoom.
