Courtney Carothers


I am an environmental anthropologist with broad interests in human-environment relationships, particularly in marine and fisheries systems. In one central area of study, I explore the shifts in fishing livelihoods as fishing rights become privatized. In another, I partner with indigenous communities in the Arctic to study social-ecological change and traditional ways of life and work toward decolonizing science.
