Jordan Fox Besek is assistant professor in the Department of Sociology. He is both a theorist and empirical researcher, who primarily uses qualitative methods. His current research examines a range of topics, including how globalized social processes link up environments across the world in ways that drive political, cultural, and legal problems; the continued relevance of W.E.B. Du Bois’s approach to interdisciplinarity and the application of this approach to contemporary environmental inequalities; and how sociological theory and practice can best incorporate both the power and limits of the natural sciences.
