Transcript of Structuration and Sustainability: Lessons from The Walking Dead
Dr. Bradley Wiggins & Dr. Ann-Gee Lee, University of Arkansas - Fort Smith
Structuration and Sustainability:
Lessons from The Walking Dead
The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending,
we lay waste our powers:
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
Power and Authority
Urban vs. Rural Differences
Conservation of Resources
Individualism vs. Collectivism
3. Critical components of sustainability (via The Walking Dead)
Moderation in consumption
Willful and creative reappropriation of objects (for unintended uses)
Daryl as Member and Outlier (Michonne?)
Lori and the Dangers of Acting Alone
Collective as Critical for Survival
1. Leadership or authority is important insofar as it serves the needs of the group.
2. Sustainability is possible if individuals work as a collective unit.
4.Meta-structures are not essential in order to have or bring about sustainability.
5.The extrinsic motivation to enact the sustainability social system and structure (sustainability structuration) is inherently connected to the ominous presence of zombies.
Thus, without extrinsic motivation true sustainability may not be possible.
