About the Compiler
The Sustainability in the Social Sciences film list was compiled by Selina Gallo-Cruz, a 2009-2010 Piedmont Fellow and PhD candidate in sociology at Emory. In fulfillment of her Piedmont Fellowship curricular development project, Selina has compiled a list of Emory library films addressing the link between social behaviors and the environment. The list is organized according to topics of interest to social sciences instructors: policy, social history, production chains, political economy/stratification, social movements, and social engineering.
The Emory University Piedmont Project is a nationally acclaimed campus sustainability program that facilitates interdisciplinary engagement on a host of environmental issues, supports curricular development on topics of sustainability, and sponsors campus-wide programs implementing sustainable practices
