This volume represents a timely response for the provision of fresh insight into the evolution of climate change communication. Through the case study method, it investigates the representation of social-ecological resilience to climate change in the emerging discursive practice mediated online by grassroots activists. The fertile ground of resilience discourse is explored by showing its more positive outlook compared to the varieties of climate change discourse competing in the ongoing climate debate. Significant varieties are examined to highlight their background role in the discourse formation of social-ecological resilience. The discursive-frame approach proposed offers more than one methodological lens, allowing to capture the interrelated discursive, cognitive and social dimensions of resilience. It thereby underlines the importance of integrating different strands of critical discourse analysis with frame analysis to attend to the sociocognitive dimension of discourse which is still largely overlooked. The book is suitable for adoption amongst a wide readership, including scholars and neophyte readers with an interest in discourse, media and cultural studies, ecolinguistics, sociolinguistics, cognitive linguistics and pragmatics. It will also appeal to social scientists with a keen interest in environmental movement studies dealing with the issue of climate change and its evolving communication.

Abstract

This volume represents a timely response for the provision of fresh insight into the evolution of climate change communication. Through the case study method, it investigates the representation of social-ecological resilience to climate change in the emerging discursive practice mediated online by grassroots activists. The fertile ground of resilience discourse is explored by showing its more positive outlook compared to the varieties of climate change discourse competing in the ongoing climate debate. Significant varieties are examined to highlight their background role in the discourse formation of social-ecological resilience. The discursive-frame approach proposed offers more than one methodological lens, allowing to capture the interrelated discursive, cognitive and social dimensions of resilience. It thereby underlines the importance of integrating different strands of critical discourse analysis with frame analysis to attend to the sociocognitive dimension of discourse which is still largely overlooked. The book is suitable for adoption amongst a wide readership, including scholars and neophyte readers with an interest in discourse, media and cultural studies, ecolinguistics, sociolinguistics, cognitive linguistics and pragmatics. It will also appeal to social scientists with a keen interest in environmental movement studies dealing with the issue of climate change and its evolving communication.
