Leslie King is associate professor in Sociology and Environmental Science and Policy. She holds a B.A. in French from Hunter College and a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Illinois. Her areas of interest include population studies, environmental sociology and social movements.

Much of her research has focused on how ideologies of nationalism, gender, race/ethnicity and class are implicated in the construction and implementation of population policies. A new research project investigates shareholder activism and socially responsible investing, particularly in the areas of social justice and the environment.

Leslie's research has been published in Ethnic and Racial Studies, European Journal of Population, Mobilization, The Sociological Quarterly, and Gender & Society. In addition, she is co-editor of an anthology, Environmental Sociology: From Analysis to Action.

Her courses include Introduction to Sociology; Evaluating Information; World Population; and Environmental Sociology.
