Notable: Jennifer Reed

Jennifer J. Reed (Sociology) was featured in a story about her dissertation research in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, "At UNLV, about 15 Take Vows in Marriage to the Earth." Reed was invited by the UNLV Student Sustainability Council to officiate a symbolic wedding to the earth ceremony, part of her study on the growing ecosexual movement, at this year's Earth Day Fair. The vows represent a form of "irreverent environmentalism" which encourages hopeful action to protect the Earth as an equal partner that also supports us.
