Eco-Impacts and the Greening of Postmodernity

Eco-Impacts and the Greening of Postmodernity
New Maps for Communication Studies, Cultural Studies, and Sociology

January 1997 | 328 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Addressing a growing need to examine environmental issues from a cultural perspective, this innovative book adopts a cultural studies approach to reach a deeper understanding of the significance of ecological issues in our lives.

Eco-Impacts and the Greening of Postmodernity explores such vital questions as: Can nature survive? How do academic disciplines engage with environmental crises? And, how do we map sustainable futures? The authors, Tom Jagtenberg and David McKie, bring a body of relevant literature into the debate - that stems from both cultural and environmental issues - as well as their own multidisciplinary perspectives on the subject.
