The Sociology of Climate Change: Culture and Discourse – Session Envr1-­B

June 7, 2013 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

In recent years, environmental sociologists have increasingly turned their attention to the social interpretations, causes, impacts and solutions to climate change. For this session, we seek work that furthers our understanding of the sociological dimensions of this environmental issue. We welcome papers that focus on a range of climate change-related topics, including: public opinion and behaviour, policy-making and governance, media representations, social inequality, corporate responses, or social movements. We welcome papers that advance the sociology of climate change from a variety of methodological and theoretical perspectives.

Session Organizer: Mark Stoddart, PhD, Memorial University of Newfoundland
Session Co-organizer: David B. Tindall, University of British Columbia
Chair: Howard Ramos
Discussant: Randolph Haluza-DeLay
