Featured Fall 2018 Graduate

Working with Wolves

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service warns prospective interns with the Mexican Wolf Recovery Project that they will work long, irregular hours, often in remote areas with extreme environmental conditions. Still, when Reagan Barron — a wildlife resources major and fall 2018 University of Idaho graduate — saw the posting, she jumped at the chance. Barron, who has been interested in wolves since junior high, did work hard. To monitor wolf movements during the summer internship in Alpine, Arizona, she set up remote cameras and hauled diversionary food caches, often heavy boxes of roadkill, to sites in the Gila and Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests. “It was difficult but very rewarding at the end of the day,” she said.

Animating a Hero

At age 6, Cameron Perry began playing a video game that featured a world undergoing industrialization. The consequences were environmental degradation and the exploitation of labor. Perry didn’t understand the themes at the time. He was more concerned with helping his character escape a meat packing plant and join a band of revolutionaries. Over time, the game’s motif started to sink in. “There’s plenty of issues in fiction where you have a prominent social issue and it’s an analog for what’s going on in the real world,” said Perry, a virtual technology and design student graduating in fall 2018 from the University of Idaho College of Art and Architecture. “Abstracting things like that lets us examine social issues that might otherwise be uncomfortable.” Read more.

Dilshani Sarathchandra Presents on the Effects of Scientific Retractions at National Conference

Dilshani Sarathchandra, assistant professor of sociology in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, presented her research on the impact of scientific retractions in the media on Tuesday, Dec. 4 at the 2018 Society for Risk Analysis Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. Sarathchandra and her co-author Aaron McCreight of Michigan State University discussed their study, "The Effects of Media Coverage of Scientific Retractions on Trust in Science," which examined how trust in scientists was shaped by exposure to news coverage of the retraction of a stem cell study. Preliminary findings show that being exposed to the news coverage does reduce trust and negative effects on trust are even larger for retractions due to "intentional misconduct." Read more.
