Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“…Ecosee … makes major contributions to analysis of the visual rhetorics in environmental discourses.” — The Year’s Work in Critical and Cultural Theory

“By making visible just how visual communication plays a powerful role in shaping public opinions about the environment, Morey and Ecosee offer useful concepts and theories to continue studying visual rhetorics related to the environment … This collection particularly encourages us to think about research approaches that go beyond the textual and beyond the social constructionist perspective.” — JAC

“The contributors have provided thoughtful, smart essays that initiate a useful discussion for the field.” — Stuart C. Brown, coeditor of Green Culture: Environmental Rhetoric in Contemporary America
