research and teaching collective


Kim Fortun, Kaitlyn Rabach and Tim Schütz. Beyond Environmental Injustice. Research Community. Disaster STS Research Network.


This reseach and teaching collective supports educators working against environmental injustice in diverse settings, in diverse ways. It is open to all, including students who want to help us carry Beyond Environmental Injustice (B-EiJ) teaching forward in both formal and informal educational settings (working with kids, elders and all between).

This workspace will be used to share ideas and material for teaching many different dimensions of environmental injustice  -- addressing the entangled politics of health, media, race, religion, government action, monitoring and surveillance, etc.  You are welcome to participate even if your teaching isn’t explicitly in environmental studies or in the idiom of environmental injustice. Our goal is to help build capacity for teaching against environmental injustice, seen as a window into and index of profound trouble with liberal order.



We invite you to join the Google email list here. When requesting access, briefly state your reason for joining. You can also join the B-EiJ Workspace on Disaster STS Network.

You are welcome to share your own ideas and materials or to ask for help developing ways to teach a particular topic.  We encourage use of informative subject lines when posting messages to the list so that it is easy to re-find them.  If you want to limit the number of emails you receive, you can change your settings so that you receive all messages in a cluster once a week. 

Shared Materials

Remixing and crediting

If you share your own teaching material, news of events, etc, please indicate if they are free to borrow or open to visitors.  We’re developing ways to credit people for developing creative syllabi, assignments, slide sets, and other course content -- not to limit their use but to support recognition of teaching material as “scholarly products.”  See more on crediting teaching collaboration here. Items that should be credited -- a syllabus, assignments or set of slides, for example --  will be archived at so that there is a permanent reference.
