Society & Natural Resources Press – University Press of Colorado

New Society & Natural Resources Book Series

Society & Natural Resources Book Series includes books that examine the complexity of interrelationships among human societies, biophysical and built environments and natural resources. We are especially interested in works that engage emergent issues and inform transformations between society and natural resources toward greater social and environmental justice, health and sustainability/resilience. The series does not privilege any particular research method, theory or discipline; it seeks submissions that build from any (or combinations) of the environmental/natural resource social sciences. Works that contribute to our understandings and actions on how global processes intersect with localities, in the South, North or through comparative case studies are encouraged. We are particularly interested in publishing new books on the following topics:

  • climate justice
  • environmental policy and governance
  • natural resource utilization, management and decision-making
  • social and cultural change as it relates to environmental change
  • sustainability/resilience transitions
  • social-ecological systems dynamics
  • practice-informed resource management
  • institutional innovations
  • political economy/ecology perspectives on natural resource change and conflict
