About

Nils Lindahl Elliot is an independent researcher, lecturer and author based in Bristol, England. His research focuses on mediate pedagogies of nature, a subject that he approaches from a transdisciplinary perspective. His work has attracted the support of the British Academy, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI). His first book, Mediating Nature (London/New York, Routledge International Library of Sociology, 2006) offers a genealogical account of the mass mediation of nature.
