Dimitris Stevis

Teaching

At the undergraduate level I teach international relations, international political economy, and green political economy with a focus on justice. I have also taught capstones on global labor politics. At the graduate level I teach Politics of the Environment and Sustainability, Governance of the World Political Economy, International Environmental Politics as well as special seminars on transnational social policy and green political economy.

Research

Dimitris' research examines the social governance of the world political economy in the areas of labor and the environment, with particular attention to power and justice. He has recently  coedited (with Edouard Morena and Dunja Krause) Just Transitions: Social Justice in the Shift towards a Low Carbon World (Pluto Press 2020) and (with Nora Räthzel and David Uzzell) the Handbook of Environmental Labor Studies (Palgrave Springer, 2021) and is completing a book on the global history and politics of just transitions. He continues to pursue research on just transitions, environmental labor studies, planetary justice, systems of sustainable production and consumption, and ‘hidden figures’ in global environmental politics. He has recently published in Environmental Politics, Political Geography, Globalizations, Earth System Governance Journal, and Resources, Conservation & Recycling.

Engagement

In addition to co-directing the Center for Environmental Justice at CSU Dimitris is also a joint convener of the Just Transition Research Collaborative, housed at the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development, and a member of the organizing committee of the Just Transition Listening Project of the Labor Network for Sustainability. Over the last several years he has helped produced a significant amount of engaged and public facing scholarship.

Madeline Schomburg

Teaching

Dr. Schomburg's current work focuses on the role of narrative in shaping environmental policy outcomes on a broad range of issues. She is broadly interested in human-environment interactions and the ways in which people mobilize for change around environmental policy problems, particularly in the context of environmental justice.

Research

Dr. Schomburg's work covers the fields of Environmental Policy and  Environmental Justice. Most of her work has focused on domestic unconventional oil and gas development, investigating the role of interest groups in mobilizing constituents to participate in political processes and the role of policy entrepreneurs in diffusing relevant policies throughout the United States.
