Michael Svoboda Faculty Member

Michael Svoboda is an Asst. Professor of Writing in the University Writing Program at George Washington University. In his writing classes he alternates between the related themes of communicating climate change and political psychology. Since 2010, he has also been a regular contributor to Yale Climate Connections (formerly The Yale Forum on Climate Change and the Media), for which he has examined how climate change is treated—or neglected—in advertising, movies, news media, political cartoons, political speeches, and TV dramas. A book synthesizing and expanding on this work, Climate Change in American Popular Culture, is scheduled for release in 2024. Michael Svoboda holds a BS in Communication Arts from Cornell University and an MA in Speech Communication and PhD in Hermeneutics from Penn State. In between his MA and PhD, which both focused on rhetorical theory in ancient Greece, he owned and operated a bookstore, and from 1992–1998 he produced and hosted a weekly radio book revue on WPSU, the NPR affiliate operated by Penn State.
