“Fighting King Coal: The Challenges to Micromobilization in Central Appalachia”
Environmental Sociologist Shannon Bell will present findings from her recent book, Fighting King Coal. Through a case study of the Central Appalachian coalfields, Bell's book examines an understudied puzzle in social movement theory: why so few of the vast number of people who suffer from industry-produced environmental hazards and pollution rise up to participate in social movements aimed at bringing about environmental justice and industry accountability. Free and open to the public.
