Kerrie Foxwell-Norton is Associate Professor at Griffith University. Kerrie's career is built upon a dedication to communication disciplines that oscillates around two broad facets: firstly, communication as critical to understanding society, especially at the current juncture where media and communication are pervasive and defining; and secondly, embracing communication’s normative dimension as key to the progression of positive social and environmental change. Her specific field is environmental communication where her goal is to amplify the connections between community, communication and environmental issues to secure positive social and environmental futures. Kerrie has worked for, and with Australia’s Indigenous communities, again focused on the essential role of communication in manifesting social justice for our First Peoples.
