Description

**** EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED********


Andrew Jorgenson Professor and Chairperson, Department of Sociology,
Professor, Environmental Studies Program
Boston College


Professor Andrew Jorgenson will provide an overview of his ongoing collaborative research streams that focus on interconnections between anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, industrial pollution, forms of inequality, and human wellbeing. This theoretically-engaged research involves the combining of social and environmental datasets at various scales, ranging from the facility level up to the national level, and the use of multiple research methods. Besides contributing to various areas of socio-environmental research within sociology, this work is also intended to help situate fundamental sociological principles more centrally within sustainability science, or in other words, to both broaden and deepen the presence of environmental sociology.
