Environmental Discourses

Posted: 9 Jan 2008

Abstract

Discourses concerned with the perceived global environmental crisis have increased dramatically over the past couple of decades. This review consists of an ethnographic analysis of the principal components of environmental discourses as well as a discussion of the approaches employed to analyze them. These include linguistic discourses (ecolinguistics, ecocritical linguistics, discourse analysis) as well as approaches developed within other disciplines (anthropology, literary studies, philosophy, and psychology).

Keywords: ecolinguistics, ethnography of communication, environmental metaphor, biocultural diversity, greenspeak
