Incoming CJC Editor, Chris Russill

Earlier this year on the unanimous recommendation of the search committee, the Canadian Journal of Communication Board approved the appointment of Dr. Chris Russill as the incoming editor of the CJC, effective as of January 1, 2019.

Chris is an associate professor at Carleton University’s School of Journalism and Communication. He did his PhD at Penn State, with an award-winning dissertation on American Pragmatism and Communication. His previous degrees were from York University.

Chris is a founding member of the International Environmental Communication Association. He also serves on the editorial boards of Environmental Communication, Science and Environmental Communication, and on the advisory boards of Palgrave Studies in Media and Environmental Communication and Communication Undisciplined.

His current work explores how “the planetary” has emerged as an object of scientific inquiry, software design, visualization, political regulation and cultural interpretation, and how “the planetary” challenges the ecological, geographical, and political frameworks that mediate our relationship to environmental crisis.

He has written on hurricanes, ozone holes, climate change, and the Anthropocene from the perspective of the tipping point paradigm of environmental crisis. He edited the Earth Observing Media issue of the CJC, a collection of images and articles from leading scholars on Google Earth, digital globes, drones, radar, sonar, GPS, missiles and satellite imaging.
