Teaching in 2018-2019

For the 2018-19 academic year, I will teach the following classes:

  • SOCI 420: Environmental Sociology.  SOCI 420 is an introduction to the study of environmental sociology. The course introduces the idea of a socio-ecological imagination - a tool we will use to understand that the way people impact and are affected by the natural world is shaped by their position in society.

  • SOCI 500: Foundations of Sociological Thought. SOCI 500 prepares students to theorize! Rather than developing expertise in the views of famous sociologists (e.g., Durkheim, Weber, Simmel, and Marx), we are going to become experts in theorizing. This will entail revisiting concepts from famous sociologists—both deceased and living—but this is only in the service of learning how to produce a social theory.
