Environmental Forces Creating Social Change

This paper is an examination of four environmental forces that have brought about social change: technological innovation (the Internet), economic meltdown (the current housing crisis), ideological imposition (the attacks of 9/11), and the environment itself (Hurricane Katrina). It considers how in each case a powerful change in the surrounding circumstances altered the way in which the social structure operates in America. Each challenged society’s values, coping mechanisms, ability to process information, and personal interactions, among many other constructs, and had transformative effects such that it is nearly impossible now to remember how things were before.
