Seeing the (in)justice of sustainability: Visualizing inequality at the centre of climate change communication

Zheng Cui, Robert E. Gutsche, Juliet Pinto

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


This Special Issue focuses on issues of sustainability and its (potential) effect(s) on widening inequalities. It does so through discussions on visual and digital communication, including documentary filmmaking, photojournalism, cartography and citizen multimedia journalism, with a broad geographic span. The issue is comprised of two sets of scholarly approaches. The first set includes perhaps more conventionally arranged articles that align with the Special Issue theme, while the second set is steeped in intersections of theory and practice as short essays, revolv-ing around visualizations that articulate veiled senses of inequalities in sustain-ability discourses.
