6/5/07: Communicating Nature

University of Utah Communication Professor Julia Corbett

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Communication professor Julia Corbett has noticed a trend in the way the media and we as individuals talk about nature. Look at car commercials, for example, and you'll be told that nature is a distant place that requires monumental effort to reach. Corbett says we've forgotten that our environment includes our back yards, and our city streets, and us. She joins Doug to explain how we talk about nature, and what that says about our relationship to the natural world.
