P. Joshua Griffin is a scholar of settler descent working at the intersections of Indigenous studies, political ecology, critical environmental anthropology, climate change, and environmental justice. His community-engaged research focuses on Arctic Indigenous ecologies, climate change, environmental health, food sovereignty, hunting and fishing governance, and environmental planning. More broadly, he is interested in approaches to "climate adaptation" that center Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination; participatory digital methods to support Indigenous environmental history, cultural heritage and planning; coastal dynamics, sea level rise, and climate-induced migration; and social movements for environmental and climate justice, including faith-based movements. Professor Griffin is jointly appointed in the School of Marine and Environmental Affairs.
