Ecomedia in New Zealand

2010 December 14

The latest issue of the New Zealand Journal of Media Studies (12:1) is devoted to examining environmental media. Most of the articles examine news media coverage of environmental debates and political issues such as climate change and genetic engineering. There is also Leon Gurevitch’s “100% Pure Imperial Ecology: Marketing the Environment in Antipodean Film and Advertising” that examines the eco-tourism of popular film franchises. As the title suggests the paper looks critically at the ways both nature and culture(s) are marketed. This paper is a valuable addition to scholarship on media and environmental racism. In all, the issue provides some excellent analysis on different environmental media issues not only in New Zealand but in the wider Australasian region.

Copies of all papers can be downloaded from the journal’s website.
