climate change denial, environmenatal justice


Over the past ten years I have published and taught in the areas of environmental sociology, gender and environment, race and environment, climate change, sociology of culture, social movements and sociology of emotions. I currently have two active areas of research 1) work on the social organization of denial (especially regarding climate change), and 2) environmental justice work with Native American Tribes on the Klamath River. Both these areas of scholarship have been nationally recognized through the award of research grants, speaking invitations, and coverage of my research by high profile media outlets including the Washington Post, National Geographic, British Broadcasting System, and National Public Radio. My book Living in Denial: Climate Change, Emotions and Everyday Life is just out with MIT Press in the Spring of 2011
