Barry Publishes in Environmental Justice


Joyce M. Barry
Joyce M. Barry
Joyce M. Barry, environmental studies lecturer, has published an essay in the inaugural issue (Spring 2008) of Environmental Justice. Barry's article, "A Small Group of Thoughtful, Committed Citizens: Women's Activism, Environmental Justice, and the Coal River Mountain Watch" examines the environmental justice efforts of the Coal River Mountain Watch (CRMW) in Whitesville, West Virginia. The CRMW is a grassroots group formed in 1998 to fight the social and environmental effects of mountaintop removal coal mining.

Organization's membership is largely comprised of white, working-class women whose homes and community have been adversely impacted by this extractive industry. Barry's article is based on research conducted in June 2006 as part of a National Endowment of the Humanities fellowship.

Environmental Justice is a new, peer-reviewed journal that explores the adverse and disparate environmental burdens impacting marginalized populations. It provides a central forum for issues including the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies.
