Environmental Communication:
Research Into Practice

This course will help you to understand what's distinct about environmental communication and why it's not necessarily the same as other types of public interest or political communication. We'll consider the unique and difficult challenges of communicating well around environmental affairs and sustainability. We’ll explore why much environmental communication today is not as effective as it could be, and is all too often counter-productive. And we’ll give you the information and critical perspective you need to make better communication choices.

Creative Bodies - Creative Minds

Creative Bodies—Creative Minds. An international, interdisciplinary conference

26th – 27th March 2018 (Graz, Austria)

Scholarly interest in creativity as a social and gendered phenomenon coincides with renewed interest in the body, embodiment and the material, championed by, among others, feminist new materialism, the sociology of emotions, cultural sociology, and sensory methodologies in qualitative research. The Creative Bodies—Creative Minds conference aims to bring these strands of inquiry together with a special emphasis on the interrogation of gender.

Book Title: Ecocultural Identity

Co-Editors: Tema Milstein (University of New Mexico) & José Castro-Sotomayor (University of New Mexico)

This edited book will bring transdisciplinary cultural, discursive, spatial, political, and ecological lenses to a much overlooked yet profoundly important issue of our time: ecocultural identity. We understand ecocultural identity as comprising the materially and discursively constructed positionality, subjectivity, perception, and practice that inform one’s emotional, embodied, ethical, and political sensibilities regarding the more than human world (Abram, c1996.). The book and its chapters will identify, examine, and reflect upon the cultivations, constraints, and force of these symbolically and materially emergent identities in our everyday and extraordinary lives.

IECA member Suzanne Chew has published an interactive, digital book of over a hundred climate cartoons which has received positive reviews from a wide range of development practitioners. From the description:
