How do I incorporate sustainability, justice, and/or equity into the courses I teach?

I teach "Sustainability, Justice & Society" and "Social Change" in the Department of Sociology.

How does my research advance sustainability, justice and/or equity?

I study how people respond to climate change. My areas of specialization include energy and climate policy, household behavior change and green lifestyles, environmental movement group strategies and framing, and qualitative methods. My current research is on climate governance and policy making in Oregon. I am particularly interested in supporting work on equity and environmental justice.
