Dr. Sue Greer-Pitt, a professor of sociology at Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College Whitesburg, has authored a chapter entitled “The Environment” to be included in the new on-line textbook “Sociology in the Fast Lane.”
The work is a venture of ByPass Publishing in conjunction with Kendall Hunt. According to Dr. Greer-Pitt, this is the first time an introductory sociology textbook has incorporated an entire chapter on the interactions between society, culture and the environment.
“It was a challenging to break new ground in intro sociology,” she said. “I did a lot of research for this project that I am now incorporating in four of my fall courses to be taught at Southeast.”
