Abstract

Panel frame:  Media, Transnational Environmental Conflcit and the Question of Agency engages the following questions: How and in what ways have media become the sites of conflict about environmental stewardship and resource control? What are the ramifications of the increasing salience of media (entrenched within dominant power factions) on the construction of popular opinion about environment and sustainable development? How are the environmental issues presented (e.g., through what discourses, antagonisms and rhetorical genres), and in whose interest?  How have issues of power, voice, environmental stewardship and social justice been shaped by recent developments in media policy, access and mobile technologies?  This panel explores these questions through case studies from different parts of the interconnected, globalized, and increasing media saturated world.Panelists (Per IAMCR instructions, all panelists are submitting paper abstracts separately):Chair Patrick D.
