ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS LECTURE POWERPOINT
Becky Clausen is a professor of Sociology & Human Services at Fort Lewis College who has been doing qualitative research to examine the effects of the Gold King Mine spill on Navajo farmers on the Navajo reservation. In conjunction with Navajo scholars, she has interviewed over 100 farmers to understand the long-term impacts of the mine spill on both their farming practices as well as the social-psychological impacts. She’ll speak to the ways in which the same event can impact different communities in very different ways.
Rebecca Clausen is the chair and an associate professor of Sociology and Human Services at Fort Lewis College. She is also an affiliate faculty member in the Environmental Studies Program. She joined the college in 2008 from the University of Oregon, where she was a graduate teaching fellow in sociology and environmental studies. Clausen is an environmental sociologist whose research interests include the social drivers of environmental change, the political economy of global food systems, and marine fishery degradation. Her current research focuses on the social and emotional impacts of the 2015 Gold King Mine Spill to farming communities on the Navajo Nation.
Dr. Clausen actively publishes her research in journals such as Sustainability and Society and Natural Resources. In 2015, Clausen co-authored and published The Tragedy of the Commodity: Oceans, Fisheries, and Aquaculture which contributed to defining a new field of Marine Sociology. She is a reviewer for several journals, including the American Sociological Review, Conservation Biology, and Sociology of Development.
Dr. Clausen is actively involved in college committees such as the Institutional Review Board. She teaches a summer field course, Ecology and Society, and travels with students for five weeks to different communities around the Four Corners. She is an advisor for the FLC Sociology Club, which runs the Grub Hub, a student-run food bank for FLC students.
For FRIDAY's CLASS
Beyond Standing Rock: Film (1 hour, 10 minutes)
Take notes as you watch on these questions:
Watching the film, Beyond Standing Rock
1. What is the film about? Let's read the film description below
2. What is tribal sovereignty?
BEYOND STANDING ROCK takes a close look at the Dakota Access pipeline, Bears Ears National Monument and other US/tribal clashes across the country.
The films take viewers to the front lines of the protests on the North Dakota plains and also investigates the ongoing legal struggle behind the protests.
In addition to the Dakota Access pipeline controversy, BEYOND STANDING ROCK looks at how Colorado’s Southern Ute Tribe has taken control over their own oil and gas resources, creating an economic powerhouse and changing the lives of tribal members.
Finally, BEYOND STANDING ROCK puts viewers right in the
middle of a heated land war over the new Bears Ears National Monument in Southeast Utah. Utah lawmakers want President Trump to overturn the designation of the new monument, while a coalition of tribes argues for collaborative management of monument lands.
