Freudenberg’s videos and lectures

24 Jun

There is a tremendous need to forge new directions in scholarship on environment and society that can ensure meaningful contributions to academia and civil society alike. There is perhaps no other contributor who has offered a larger trove of concepts and insights to direct such an endeavor than William R. Freudenburg, Dehlsen Professor of Environment and Society at UCSB. Over the past several decades, his work in the areas of risk, disaster, and natural resource development, and most critically the political forces that define such events, has offered multiple seeds that warrant further development by others in our sub-discipline.

This site contains videos of Bill:
– In His Own Words (interview, November, 2010)
– The Legacy of Bill (tributes from colleagues)
– Blowout in the Gulf Book Lecture (November, 2010)
– 12 class lectures, part of his “Intro to Environmental Studies” course (Fall qtr., 2010)

Please note, the sound quality of the class lectures varies in quality, so you may have to crank up your computer volume to hear.
