Title: REWILDING SUBURBIA: LEARNING HOW TO COHABIT IN AN OVERCROWDED WORLD
Authors: Barrett, William
Advisors: Kornblum, William
Department: Sociology
Class Year: 2014
Abstract: In this thesis, the one main question that I wanted to answer was: What is rewilding and how does it relate to Northeastern ecosystems? Rewilding is complex; it is a brand new conservationism topic and its success matters on several different factors, each of which I aimed at exploring in some way. To try and answer this question I compared ecosystems both past and present from the Western and Northeastern United States. I found there to be not one, but a plethora of possible answers to my question. By shedding light on each one, I hoped that by the end of my thesis the reader would be able to be informed enough to make their own decisions on the other questions I ask throughout my thesis. What I found to be true is that rewilding the Northeast has proven to be a tricky subject to find one specific answer to.
