Media Research Group University of Brighton

Environmental Communication and Ethics

Environmental concerns are at the forefront of national and global politics, economics and cultural practices. Our Media Research contributes towards, and intervenes in, current debates surrounding climate change, animal welfare and ethics, food production and consumption, e-mobility, (anti)consumerism and sustainable ways of living. Our work in this field examines and questions the ways in which our understanding of ‘the environment’, animals and mobility has been shaped over time by popular imagery and media discourses. In turn, our research aims to contribute towards ecological literacy and ethical subjectivities that allow for a sustainable future.
