Downwind: A Case Study of Contamination and Powerlessness in Community Environmental Activism
Southern Communication Journal
This essay examines the transformation of ideographs as they are passed from one social movement organization to another. The processes of articulation and appropriation are presented as a means of understanding which circumstances allow for a successful conveyance of discourse. A case study of “downwinder” discourse is offered as a means of analyzing this process and its effect on the construction of identity and place.
