2010 Readings

This is a general 'file cabinet' of readings for the seminar. When the readings listed here are associated with a specific seminar session, they will appear in the relevant 'Weekly Session' folder. This folder also contains general readings suggested by participants but not associated with a particular session.

Sustainability Science Book draft
This folder contains individual DRAFT chapters of the book "Sustainability Science: An introduction." Please do not distribute or cite beyond the seminar.
Sustainability Science Reader
This folder contains a copy of the draft Sustainability Science Reader, plus the selections in the Reader recommended as supplementary reading for each session of the seminar. We would appreciate your feedback on the Readings in Sustainability Science and Technology that Bob Kates has drafted and from which the 2 or 3 additional readings for each session have been chosen. In particular, what additional readings would you like to see included in the Reader, where in the outline do they fit, what level are they (e.g., The Reading [1 or 2 items], Worth Reading [up to 10 items], or Worth Searching [3 items]), and ideally what reading would you substitute your recommended reading for. We are particularly interested in expanding articles that include case studies. If a topic or two has been left out, or a case hasn’t been made for some of those topics included, or if the writing in a particular instance is unclear and could be improved, please let us know that too. Please post your comments in the Discussion section of the web site under the relevant session, and send a copy by email to
