research overview

  • Jill Lindsey Harrison’s research focuses on environmental sociology, sociology of agriculture and food systems, environmental justice, political theories of justice, and immigration politics, with emphasis on the United States. She has used her research on political conflict over agricultural pesticide poisonings in California and recent escalations in immigration enforcement in rural Wisconsin to identify and explain the persistence of environmental inequalities and workplace inequalities in the United States today. Her new research project investigates government agencies' efforts to institutionalize the principles of environmental justice (EJ) into regulatory practice.
