About this book

Environment, Social Justice, and the Media in the Age of Anthropocene addresses three imminent challenges to human society in the age of the Anthropocene. The first challenge involves the survival of the species; the second the breakdown of social justice; and the third the inability of the media to provide global audiences with an adequate orientation about these issues. The notion of the Anthropocene as a geological age shaped by human intervention implies a new understanding of the human context that influences the physical and biological sciences. Human existence continues to be affected by the physical and biological reality from which it evolved but, in turn, it affects that reality as well. This work addresses this paradox by bringing together the contributions of researchers from very different disciplines in conversation about the complex relationships between the physical/biological world and the human world to offer different perspectives and solutions in establishing social and environmental justice in the age of the Anthropocene.

Media reviews

"Drawing on a diverse range of fields and approaches, this intellectually rigorous essay collection takes the Anthropocene debate beyond discussions of humanity's past to tackle the realities of our present and strategies for our future. This is an essential work for those who wish to understand both our current environmental crisis and the ways our socio-political institutions are failing to confront it."
– Erin Stewart Mauldin, University of South Florida
