Until Justice and Stewardship Embrace: Or, How a Geographer Thinks About Brownfield Sites

Mark D. Bjelland


In this essay Mark D. Bjelland notes how the geographical integration of the realms of society, nature, and meaning serves as a corrective to the lack of social awareness in ecological thought and the lack of ecological awareness in social thought. A case study of brownfield sites in Minneapolis-St. Paul explores the interrelationships between places and the interconnections between social and ecological processes. Geography’s integrated view of the world provides a framework for bringing together social justice and ecological concerns and developing a more integrated Christian vision of peoples, places, and the earth. Mr. Bjelland is Assistant Professor of Geography at Gustavus Adolphus College.
