Dr Lucie Middlemiss is interested in the boundary between social and environmental issues; how environmental problems and policy affect people, and how people can in turn affect environmental problems. She has disciplinary roots in sociology, and in recent years has begun to take a more critical approach to sustainability. This has included an increasing engagement with social theory. She is intrigued by the substantial changes observed by social theorists since the second world war, and intent on exploring how these might have an impact on sustainability debates
