Using Oklahoma City as our laboratory, in settings ranging from classroom to boardroom to neighborhood; we will explore various cultural, economic, political and personal responses to these challenges through research, discussion and reflection, and civic engagement, using the structure and method of an Introduction to Sociology course and Environmental Ethics as an interpretive framework.
