The speaker is Dr. Clint Carroll, an Assistant Professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Dr. Carroll is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, and his research explores the intersection of indigenous governance and indigenous environmental perspectives in settler state contexts. He studies the ability of indigenous nations to assert sovereignty over their lands and the extent to which this enables the perpetuation of unique ecological knowledges and practices. As a graduate student, he was awarded the EPA Science to Achieve Results (STAR) Fellowship, and his work is featured in the recent EPA report, “A Decade of Tribal Environmental Health Research” (http://www.epa.gov/ncer/tribalresearch/news/results-impacts.pdf).
