Bio/Research

Aaron M. McCright is Associate Professor of Sociology in the Department of Sociology and Lyman Briggs College at Michigan State University. He also has an appointment in the Environmental Science and Policy Program. He holds a BA in Sociology from the University of Northern Iowa and an MA and PhD in Sociology from Washington State University.

Most of Dr. McCright’s scholarship spans the fields of environmental sociology, political sociology, social movements, and sociology of science and technology. His intellectual agenda is to enhance our sociological understanding of how political, social, and scientific dynamics influence society’s capacity for recognizing and dealing with environmental degradation and technological risks. This has led him to investigate (a) the political dynamics and public understanding of climate change; (b) social movement identity and ideology for the environmental movement and beyond; (c) our sociological understanding of societal risk; (d) the influence of globalization forces on environmental management in formerly remote communities; and (e) the dynamics of scientific practices at tropical field stations.
