Postenvironmentalism: A Material Semiotic Perspective on Living Spaces

Certomà, Chiara. 2016. Postenvironmentalism. A Material Semiotic Perspective on Living Spaces. Palgrave Macmillan US

Abstract

This book presents a vibrant study of the rise, decline, and transformation of environmental thinking. The author’s analysis moves from the proclaimed death of environmentalism toward the emerging theory and practices of postenvironmentalism in its manifold interpretations. Building upon current transformation of the relationship between science, technology, society and the environment, the book combines a theory-informed presentation of worldwide cases and crucial events in the history of environmentalism with a journey into scholarly explorations in order to answer the crucial question: where is environmental thinking heading?
