Environmental and Urban Studies Program presents

Place, Conservation, and Development in Destination Landscapes

A Lecture by Shaun Golding
Candidate for tenure track position in Environmental and Urban Studies

Monday, April 15, 2013

This talk considers the complex relationship between socio-economic inequality and conservation in America’s rural destinations, by probing the gentrifying effect of urban-rural migration. It derives from qualitative research on land use planning conducted in a rural destination community in the Midwest, and from national demographic research on the process of rural gentrification.  

Shaun Golding is a graduate of Bowdoin College, where he majored in sociology and environmental studies.  He earned his MS in rural sociology and his PhD in sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His areas of emphasis include the environment and natural resources, migration, and social inequality. He is particularly interested in community-based and internationally comparative studies of rural conservation and development.

Time: 4:45 pm – 5:45 pm
