There’s a new environmental journal in town, called Media + Environment and published by the University of California Press.
Media+Environment (officially written as Media and Environment) is an open access, online, peer-reviewed journal of transnational and interdisciplinary ecomedia research. The journal seeks to foster dialogue within a fast-growing global community of researchers and creators working to understand and address the myriad ways that media and environments affect, inhabit, and constitute one another. Founded on the premise that media and environment is a crucial conjunction for our time, the journal thus encourages both traditional and multimodal forms of scholarship.
And for its first issue the editors have issued a call for submissions around the theme: Mediating Art & Science:
A thematic stream for the journal Media+Environment, which revisits the intellectual and communicative barriers once posited between the “two cultures” of the sciences and the humanities via the new synchronies presented by environmentally oriented arts and media; edited by Alenda Chang and Adrian Ivakhiv. “Mediating Art and Science” is the second stream to be slated for publication in Media+Environment.
PS: The journal is included in our ever-expanding list of publications for environmental writing.
