Duration: 2011-2015

Language, Cognition and the Human Mind

This work aimed at bringing out the precise way in which language enhances human cognitive capacity. After figuring out the continuity between perceptual and conceptual systems mainly in terms of categorization, the project locates how certain central concepts like rationality and self can be understood in terms of the embodied framework. The embodied framework, with its middle way between many polarized debates, offers fresh insights into many central everyday concepts. Further, the project explains how re-conceptualizing self can help in appreciating different approaches such as the sensory motor explanation of consciousness.

(2014) and (2015) Paperback

Ecoambiguity, Community, and Development

It takes stock of cultural and environmental contexts in many different regions of the world by exploring literature and film. Artists and scholars working in the social ecology, environmental justice, and postcolonial arenas have long recognized that as soon as we tug on a thread of “ecodegradation,” we generally find it linked to some form of cultural oppression.

The Routledge Handbook of Ecocriticism and Environmental Communication 

The Routledge Handbook of Ecocriticism and Environmental Communication  (2019) charts the history of the relationship between ecocriticism and environmental communication studies, while also highlighting key new paradigms in information studies, diverse examples of practical applications of environmental communication and textual analysis, and the patterns and challenges of environmental communication in non-Western societies. Contributors to this book include literary, film and religious studies scholars, communication studies specialists, environmental historians, practicing journalists, art critics, linguists, ethnographers, sociologists, literary theorists, and others, but all focus their discussions on key issues in textual representations of human–nature relationships and on the challenges and possibilities of environmental communication.
