Socio-environmental issues

gareau bookBoston College sociologist Brian Gareau, along with Damian White and Alan Rudy, have published Environments, Natures and Social Theory (Palgrave MacMillan, 2015), a groundbreaking text that provides a definitive, cross-disciplinary mapping of the state of environmental social theory. The authors insist on the necessity of a critical but optimistic hybrid politics, arguing that a more just, egalitarian, democratic and sustainable anthropocene is within reach. Gareau was one of the organizers of BC’s recent conference, “Our Common Home,” which explored the spiritual and policy implications of Pope Francis’ encyclical on climate change.
