Emotions in Environmental Discourses - Analysing the Insect Decline in Germany
Örebro University, School of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences.
2018 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Insects are not really beloved by many people, although their importance for humankind and the

planet’s ecosystem is out of question. The lack of resonance and emotional attachment towards

insects have an immense impact on how politics deal with the fact that the number of insects is

decreasing and the ecological balance is threatened as a consequence. This thesis contributes to the

understanding of the role of emotions in environmental discourses and examines the societal

meaning of the insect biodiversity. Analysing how the discourse is visualised and communicated in

the media shows how and to what extent different emotions are evoked to make people care about

insects, be engaged and mobilised. Emotions can be seen as the base for caring and feeling

responsible for the natural word, establishing ecological awareness and inducing socio-political

change.
