Environmental Communication and Nature: Conflict and Ecoculture in the Anthropocene
This interdisciplinary book series seeks original proposals that examine environmental communication scholarship. In the Anthropocene era, the period during which human activity has become the dominant influence on climate and the environment, the need for highlighting and re-centering nature in our worldviews and policies is urgent, as collapsing ecosystems across the globe struggle to survive. Topics might include climate change, land use conflict, water rights, natural disasters, non-human animals, the culture of nature, ecotourism, wildlife management, human/nature relationships, food studies, sustainability, eco-pedagogy, mediated nature, eco-terrorism, environmental education, ecofeminism, international development, and environmental conflict. Ultimately, scholarship that addresses the general overarching question “how do individuals and societies make sense of and act against/within/out of nature?” is welcomed. This series is open to contributions from authors in environmental communication, environmental studies, media studies, rhetoric, political science, critical geography, critical/cultural studies, and other related fields. We also seek diverse and creative epistemological and methodological framings that might include ethnography, content analysis, narrative and/or rhetorical analysis, participant observation, and community-based participatory research, among others. Successful proposals will be accessible to a multidisciplinary audience.
