In this editorial introduction, we revisit the question: ‘What is environmental media studies?’ This provocation, raised in an exceptional article by founding co-editors Meryl Shriver-Rice and Hunter Vaughan in the journal’s first issue, continues to influence how the journal moves forward. However, under the leadership of a new editorial team, we reflect on the new directions and ongoing challenges presented by the interdisciplinary field of environmental media studies through the contributions of Issue 4.1. Working across a number of approaches, topics and interdisciplinary positions, we offer insights into the transformations of the field demonstrated in the excellent work of our authors.
