Revealing the socioecological relationships between cattlemen and environmentalists in addition to builders and recreationists, she analyzes the ways in which language shapes panorama by means of shaping judgements approximately land use.
Stevens makes a speciality of the collaborative Sonoran desolate tract Conservation Plan initiated via Pima County, Arizona, the ever present use of medical argument to protect contradictory practices, and the development and negotiation of rancher/environmentalist identities to light up either actually and metaphorically the dynamics of land use politics. Drawing particularly upon broad interviews with a various array of brokers on both sides of the debate—ranchers, environmentalists, scientists, land managers, executive officials—on ancient narratives, and on her personal conflicting reports as a person who grew up with those that paintings the western lands, she demonstrates that it truly is attainable to take advantage of transformations to resolve, instead of to irritate, the entrenched difficulties that bridge land and language.
By integrating her richly textured case examine of a delicate area with rhetorical methods to narrative, science-based argument, and collective identities, Stevens makes an important contribution to the fields of rhetoric, land administration, and cultural studies.
