East of the Tracks: Grassroots Environmentalism in South Mississippi
Heather has primarily been interested in the way conceptualizations of the environment and environmental hazards are framed in order to create and sustain collective action within grassroots movements. She favors qualitative research with an emphasis on applied audio/visual methods. Heather is hoping to expand her research soon to explore the lived experiences of southern LGBTQ couples as they participate in marriage equality movements.
