“There Is No Planet B”: Questions During a Power Shift
Communication and cultural studies are implicated in environmental matters. Unsustainable practices are relevant, contingent, contextual, articulated, public, banal, extraordinary, embodied, affective, global/local, material technocultural relations that hold life itself at stake. Given
residual and dominant ecological crises and environmental injustices, palpable pressure to intervene in the contemporary power shift exists. While we remain invested in mapping the dynamic relations that constitute specific cultural assemblages and provide the conditions of possibility for
particular acts, we also should continue to find better ways to identify and to intervene in emergent exigencies animated by our profound limits.
