Miriam Greenberg, “Bringing Equity Back In, or, How is the Housing Crisis a Sustainability Issue?,” May 12, 2016

Miriam Greenberg is Associate Professor of Sociology and director of the multi-campus Critical Sustainabilities project, which explores the multiple, competing, historically-rooted discourses of sustainability in Northern California. The project finds that differing approaches to sustainability emphasize different aspects of the famous “3 E’s” of economy, equity, and ecology laid out in the original Bruntland definition of the concept. In addition, it finds that some sustainabilities have been more powerful than others, agreeing with scholars like Julian Agyeman that “equity-deficient” approaches have tended to win out.
