SO 326 - Social Theories of the Environment


Credits: 3
How do we make sense of contemporary society’s relationship with nature? Scholars have produced a rich array of responses to this question that often conflict with one another. These theorists are also concerned with how social thought can be used to guide solutions to environmental problems. Reading original work, we will consider the applicability, insight, and relevancy of a host of perspectives, including ecological Marxism, ecological anarchism, social constructivisim, ecological realism, eco-modernization, and neo-Malthusianism. 
Prerequisites: one gateway course (SO 101 or SO 201 or SO 202 or SO 203 or SO 204 or ES 100) and one additional sociology course.
