ICA member Tema Milstein is coeditor of a new book from Routledge addressing ways to help learners effectively navigate and consciously contribute to the communication shaping our ecological present and future.The book, Environmental Communication Pedagogy and Practice (20% discount available at www.routledge.com with code FLR40), brings together more than 40 international communication scholar-educators working from a variety of perspectives to engage both theory and application. Contributors address how pedagogy can stimulate ecological wakefulness, support diverse and praxis-based ways of learning, and nurture ecocultural change agents. Additionally, the volume responds to a practical need to increase teaching effectiveness of environmental communication across disciplines by offering a repertoire of useful learning activities and assignments. Altogether, it provides an impetus for reflection upon and enhancement of our own practice as educators, practitioners, and students.
From Routledge: “Environmental Communication Pedagogy and Practice is an essential resource for those working in environmental communication, environmental and sustainability studies, environmental journalism, environmental planning and management, environmental sciences, media studies and cultural studies, as well as communication subfields such as rhetoric, conflict and mediation, and intercultural. The volume is also a valuable resource for environmental communication professionals working with communities and governmental and non-governmental environmental organisations.” If you’re at an educational institution, please consider asking your library to order the book/ebook so it can be of use to others.

A message from Adrienne Shaw (U of Minnesota)
My co-editor Bonnie Ruberg and I are excited to announce the release of our collection Queer Game Studies, out now from University of Minnesota Press. If you do research and/or teach in the areas of gender, sexuality, and games, we hope you’ll give it a look.
Queer Game Studies is the first volume to explore LGBTQ issues in video games from a diverse range of perspectives. Our hope is that it speaks to game studies, queer studies, and feminist media studies more broadly.
