Jordan Fox is associate professor in the Department of Sociology. He is both a theorist and empirical researcher, who primarily uses qualitative methods. His broad interest is in our limited ability to control nature. Towards this end, Jordan’s current research examines a range of topics, including how and why powerful institutions have become strategically ignorant of ecological complexity; the socio-material origins of both invasive species ecology and fire ecology; and how social science should (or should not) incorporate natural science.
