SOC 370 - Sociology of the Environment

Sociology of the Environment is the study of the complex relations between the social world and the natural environment. The sociologist is particularly interested in the role played by popular culture, economic systems, urbanization, rationalization, globalization, race, and gender relations (environmental justice) in the creation and continuation of various environmental problems. Thus the course refers to efforts to understand and illuminate the societal dynamics in terms of social practices citizens engage in as they go about their lives. Cumulatively these social practices produce particular consumption and use patterns that have significantly altered the natural world.
