Judith Hendry has published a new edition of Communication and the Natural World

Judith Hendry has published a second edition of Communication and the Natural World. The textbook explores historical and contemporary environmental discourse and the ways particular perspectives can shape environmental policy and practice. The new edition reflects current theory, events, and controversies, and emphasizes digital citizen activism, environmental justice, and the erosion of trust in science and media. Hendry is professor emeritus in the Department of Communication and Journalism at the University of New Mexico.

Communication and the Natural World introduces students to the complex issues and arguments that pervade current discourse about the environment. The book explores the ways our communication profoundly affects how we perceive and interact with the natural world. And it shows, clearly and vividly, how cultural, philosophical, commercial, mass-mediated, and popular discourse shape social as well as environmental policy.

Thoroughly updated to reflect current theoretical perspectives, recent events and controversies, and evolving issues and concerns, the second edition also has a heightened emphasis on digital citizen activism, environmental justice, and the challenges arising from the erosion of trust in science and media.
