Dromoecology: ecological meaning in the age of hypercapitalism

Pace, John (2003) Dromoecology: ecological meaning in the age of hypercapitalism. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.

Abstract

This thesis examines the mediation of ecological values, showing that we come to understand, interact, and value the ecologies in which we are bound, through experience of commodified and technologised abstractions of ecological life. So doing, I take the study of ecological value out of the natural and into the cultural, because it is within the sphere of culture that such ecological values are propagated and valiorised. And it is those values that determine how we act on, in, and through our environments, and ultimately come to engage as active ecological agents.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
