You Are Here: A Field Guide for Navigating Polarized Speech, Conspiracy Theories, and Our Polluted Information Landscape, co-authored by Whitney Phillips and Ryan Milner, employs a series of ecological metaphors to describe our present information landscape and to explain the various network changes that brought us to this moment. While these metaphors provide a useful, inclusive entry-point into pressing ethical and political issues, they also pose some methodological challenges. This talk will discuss both the positives and the negatives of metaphor as argument. It will also discuss how and why Phillips and Milner chose to translate You Are Here’s metaphors into a children’s book.
