"Environments and Media" is an open forum for sharing research and resources about the complexities of representing and imagining environments and ecologies today. It welcomes discussion of a variety of topics ranging from environmental-ist media, to environments as media, to media's environmental impact, slow violence, resource politics and climate change. Additionally, it may serve as a forum for discussing the ways that discourses, images, and media channels jointly contstruct and circulate shifting pictures of distant environments (a process Stefan Helmreich has helpfully called "transduction," a word borrowed from sound technologies). Posting material that would be useful to teach with is especially welcome! Members who join this group might also think about forming a panel of "lightning talks" for HASTAC's conferenc in Lima, Peru (due Nov. 15) on "Hemispheric Pathways: Critical Makers in International Networks."
