  讲座简介:

  
This course provides an overview of the subdiscipline of Environmental Sociology.  Emerging in the early 1970s, Environmental Sociology represents a relatively new area of inquiry, with its focus an extension of earlier Sociology through inclusion of the physical context as related to social factors.  

   From its formative years, Environmental Sociology has drawn heavily from Human Ecology, Urban Sociology, Rural Sociology, as well as work by Ecological and Cultural Anthropologists.  Important linkages are also found with Urban Planning and Environmental Psychology. 

  Reflecting this multidisciplinarity, within Environmental Sociology the “environment” reflects both natural and built contexts.  In both cases, researchers aim to examine how society effects the environment, as well as how the environment effects, and reflects, society.  Topics of inquiry include public environmental opinion, environmentalism as a social movement, human-induced environmental change, social response to natural disasters. Also reflecting the multidisciplinarity nature of Environmental Sociology, our readings represent classic contributions and more recent academic research from a range of intellectual perspectives. 

  The general aim of the course is to introduce students to the fundamental conceptual frameworks, data, methods and topics engaged within several topical areas of environmental sociological scholarship.
