Course summary

Environmental communication is a dynamic and cutting-edge research area that helps envision and create more sustainable societies through its focus upon the central role of media and communication in shaping understandings of and responses to environmental and climate change.

Working across theory and practice, and with non-academic partners and communities, we are perfectly placed to support students who wish to work on projects that both explore and challenge how environments are constructed, represented, communicated, experienced and contested through a variety of media and communication forms and creative practices.

Your Environmental communication PhD will address the urgent challenges of environmental and climate change through media, communication and practice, with the vision to create sustainable and environmentally just societies. We take as a basis that we understand and experience environments through everyday practices that are mediated through communication practices – from texts, visual imagery and social media interactions, to the products we consume and the spaces we inhabit - shaping how we respond to and engage with, and indeed construct, the daily, built and natural environments.

Environmental Communication PhD research contributes towards, and intervenes in, current debates surrounding climate change, human-animal relations and ethics, sustainable food production and consumption, big data and everyday life, climate induced migration, (anti)consumerism, and sustainable ways of living.
