Abstract or Description

EcoMedia sets out to understand the ways ecological concerns are mediated through popular film and television. In case studies of Japanese animation, wildlife documentary, TV drama and Hollywood and art house cinema, Sean Cubitt traces the conflicted workings of the popular imagination of global warming, eco-terrorism, bio-security, genetic modification, environmental ethics and our fraught relationships with animals. Drawing on the work of Habermas, Flusser, Luhmann and Latour among many others, Cubitt argues that, far from distorting the truth or closing down relationships between us and our environments, the technological media are integral to communication between
humans and the green world.
