Assistant Professor publishes book with Michigan State University Press

CELEBRATIONS!

Congratulations to Assistant Professor Joshua Barnett for the publication of Mourning in the Anthropocene: Ecological Grief and Earthly Coexistence​ with Michigan State University Press. In this book, Dr. Barnett argues that the capacity to grieve for more-than-human others is neither natural nor inevitable. It must be cultivated by rhetorical practices of naming, archiving, and making visible ecological loss. His book is an eloquent and immediately relevant work for a world that struggles to transform personal and public anxiety over ecological devastation into grief that leads to action and the illumination of pathways to a more connected, caring earthly coexistence. Join the Communication Arts & Sciences Department in celebrating this important book by our colleague Dr. Joshua Barnett.
