Gabriella Capurro, a PhD candidate in communication within the School of Journalism and Communication, is very familiar with “the outbreak narrative.”
It’s where the media “follow the spread of cases and search for patient zero” during an outbreak, often reducing it to a story about “us and them.”
However, the emergence of antimicrobial resistance in the Western world has upended this narrative and made it more difficult for media to identify outbreaks as threats that come from the outside.
Capurro’s research was recently profiled by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs.
