Description:  The aim of this preconference is twofold. First, it seeks to highlight current and future scholarship in the intersection of race and ethnic studies and environmental communication. We hope to expand the scholarly discussion in environmental communication to become more inclusive of the unique theoretical and conceptual lenses that scholars working in studies on environmental justice and racism use. Second, it seeks to foster collaborations between scholars across the Environmental Communication Division and the Ethnicity and Race in Communication Division. We seek submissions that address the spectrum of environmental communication and race/ethnicity from diverse international perspectives, methods and subfields within communication and related fields/disciplines.
