Environmental Sociology

1870N [CRN: 15583]

Since its formal inception in the late-1970s, environmental sociology has developed as a highly interdisciplinary field that simultaneously confronts core sociological questions and challenges. This seminar provides students with a selective overview of major approaches, debates, and interdisciplinary cross-currents shaping the field of environmental sociology. The general goal of the course is to deepen collective understanding of the dynamic interrelationships shaping human societies and the natural environment. To do so, we will consider how sociologists and others have conceptualized society-environment relations and critically assess the various approaches developed to examine those relations, their causes, and outcomes.
