Event Description

Full Description:
Taking her cue from media ecology and theories of ecological citizenship, Dr Richards will trace the evolution of Attenborough’s landmarks through changes in broadcasting, and the public representation and construction of climate change in the broader media landscape. She will argue that Attenborough’s series fundamentally changed the way we looked at wild animals and the environment. But Dr Richards will also tell an alternate story about how these series, with their pristine visions of wilderness and their evocations of science as balanced and ordered, largely glossed over the complexities of environmental politics and scientific practice to offer increasingly spectacular and technologized visions of nature.
