Bridie McGreavy is an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication and Journalism at the University of Maine and a Faculty Fellow with the Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions. She studies how communication shapes sustainability and justice efforts in coastal shellfishing communities, river restoration and freshwater conservation initiatives, and transdisciplinary collaborations. Dr. McGreavy is currently chair of the Science Advisory Committee for the Maine Shellfish Restoration and Resilience Fund, which provides seed grants to shellfish harvesters and municipalities for coastal adaptation efforts. She serves as the Project Leader for the Maine Shellfish Learning Network, a coastwide initiative to support learning, leadership and equity in Maine and Wabanaki wild clam and mussel fisheries. Dr. McGreavy is also a lead investigator on the Maine-eDNA Project, a $20 million National Science Foundation EPSCoR project where her engaged research helps connect multiple forms of knowledge with coastal management for water quality monitoring and sustainable fisheries. Her research has been published in interdisciplinary journals such as Environmental Communication, Ecology and Society, Sustainability Science, and Philosophy and Rhetoric. Her co-edited book, Tracing Rhetoric and Material Life: Ecological Approaches was published in 2018 and advances ecological thinking in communication to support social-environmental justice and sustainability.
