Kansas University geography associate professor, Jay Johnson, is the recipient of a 2014 Collaborative Research Fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS). The fellowship promotes collaborative research in the humanities and social sciences and will result in him co-authoring a book with fellow geographer, Soren Larsen, associate professor at the University of Missouri.
Focusing on place-based struggles in British Columbia, New Zealand, and Kansas, the book
will explore how the ongoing tensions between Indigenous groups and
non-Indigenous communities and governments are transforming the places
and politics of settler states in the twenty-first century.
Dr. Johnson is also the co-director of the Kansas NSF EPSCoR-funded Haskell Environmental Research Studies (HERS) summer internship program that provides research experiences to up to 15 tribal college undergraduate students each summer.
