Axelle Germanaz, M.A.
My research examines the use of environmental rhetoric, imagery, and themes in contemporary US far-right politics and culture. I am also interested in environmental and energy humanities, theories of race and racism, ideology, popular culture, and affect studies and sentimentality.
