Knight Center research director publishes new book on environmental communication

Book edited by Takahashi and Rosenthal

Knight Center research director Bruno Takahashi has co-edited a volume titled Environmental Communication Among Minority Populations.

The six chapters in this volume dovetail with the idea that environmental communication scholars and practitioners can effectively intervene to engage ethnic groups that traditionally are not included in decision making or deliberation processes that directly affect their livelihoods. The chapter covers various populations in countries such as Canada, China, Guatemala, India, and the US.
Takahashi’s co-editor is Sonny Rosenthal, assistant professor at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
This volume originated from a pre-conference co-organized by Takahashi and Rosenthal on this topic at the 2017 meeting of the International Communication Association in San Diego, CA.
