Overview

Media and the Ecological Crisis is a collaborative work of interdisciplinary writers engaged in mapping, understanding and addressing the complex contribution of media to the current ecological crisis. The book is informed by a fusion of scholarly, practitioner, and activist interests to inform, educate, and advocate for real, environmentally sound changes in design, policy, industrial, and consumer practices. Aligned with an emerging area of scholarship devoted to identifying and analysing the material physical links of media technologies, cultural production, and environment, it contributes to the project of greening media studies by raising awareness of media technology's concrete environmental effects.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book addresses a much neglected dimension, is theoretically well anchored and is particularly commendable for the way in which the perspective engages in a novel and critical fashion with more traditional ways of looking at media technologies from an ecological/environmental perspective."Anders Hansen, University of Leicester, UK
