  • Thinking Globally, Acting Locally: Locavorism and Humanist Sociology
    • Authors: Fitzgerald; K. J.
      Pages: 3 - 21
      Abstract: In this address, I offer an explanation as to why I chose the theme "Locavore Sociology: Challenging Globalization, Embracing the Local" and the host city of Portland, Oregon, for the 2015 Association for Humanist Sociology meetings. I argue that locavorism is a distinctly humanist form of activism. I then explore the origins of locavorism, particularly in terms of its most obvious manifestation in the locavore food movement but also its extension to lesser known movements such as local living economies, local energy production and consumption, and local knowledges. The promise of locavorism and the limits of locavorism as a progressive movement are explored. Finally, I introduce the idea of locavore sociology as a challenge to dominant disciplinary narratives that interfere with understanding nuances associated with locality.

  • Voluntary Simplifiers, Spirituality, and Happiness
    • Authors: Walther, C. S; Sandlin, J. A, Wuensch, K.
      Pages: 22 - 42
      Abstract: In this article, we explore the connections between voluntary simplicity (VS), people who are dedicated to consuming less material goods, and Western spirituality. We investigate how voluntary simplifiers connect their practices of simplicity with their concepts and enactments of Western spirituality. First, we propose two categories of voluntary simplifiers identities based on interviews with individuals practicing VS: (1) spiritual voluntary simplifiers (N = 9) and (2) secular voluntary simplifiers (N = 6). Second, we suggest that voluntary simplifiers believe that they are happier and more content than consumers. We conclude by suggesting future research about spirituality and identities.

  • The Baby and the Bathwater: Balancing Disciplinary Debates and Community
           Engagement to Advance Student Interest in Publicly Engaged Sociology
    • Authors: Kane; E. W.
      Pages: 43 - 63
      Abstract: Sociologists eager to engage in social change work may see both promise and risk in two interrelated movements: initiatives to renew the role of civic and community engagement in higher education and initiatives within the discipline of sociology to advance publicly engaged work. I focus on one specific intersection of those movements by exploring how community-based research (CBR) relates to student attitudes toward the social change potential of sociology. Analysis of student responses in an undergraduate seminar on publicly engaged sociology and CBR suggests that carefully structured, reciprocally partnered CBR not only encourages student interest in community engagement, it can also encourage critical thinking about the discipline in ways that promote its potential for addressing social issues. I consider the implications of these results for structuring courses and curricula that advance civic engagement and the public good as a broad movement across higher education and sustain student interest in the progressive role sociology can play as a discipline in contributing to that movement.

  • "The Pig That Therefore I Am": Visual Art and Animal Activism
    • Authors: Cherry; E.
      Pages: 64 - 85
      Abstract: How does visual art affect the work of social movements? In her photography series "The Pig That Therefore I Am," artist Miru Kim photographs her nude body alongside pigs in factory farms and in farm sanctuaries. Using Kim’s photographs, her artist’s statement, and her artist talk from her exhibit opening, I argue that Kim’s work, and several other visual artists’ work, mirrors the work of animal rights activists as they bring to light typically invisible animal practices, subvert typical power relations regarding "the gaze," and shift symbolic boundaries between humans and animals. By making the invisible visible, and by highlighting symbolic boundaries between humans and animals, I show how visual art plays a significant role in viewers’ initial awareness of and potential mobilization into the animal rights movement. I argue that these roles hold true for art created explicitly for animal rights purposes, as well as art created without such a political goal in mind. In doing so, this article contributes to our broader understanding of the relationship between art and social movements.
