Revealing the socioecological relationships between cattlemen and environmentalists in addition to builders and recreationists, she analyzes the ways in which language shapes panorama through shaping judgements approximately land use.
Stevens specializes in the collaborative Sonoran desolate tract Conservation Plan initiated via Pima County, Arizona, the ever present use of medical argument to guard 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 each side of the debate—ranchers, environmentalists, scientists, land managers, govt officials—on historic narratives, and on her personal conflicting stories as an individual who grew up with those that paintings the western lands, she demonstrates that it's attainable to take advantage of changes to unravel, instead of to irritate, the entrenched difficulties that bridge land and language.
By integrating her richly textured case research 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.
