Johann Strube is an environmental sociologist interested in environmental justice, the political ecology of social reproduction in North America, and the decolonization of human-non-human relationships. As a Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Public Policy and Administration, Johann contributes to two large community-based research projects on Indigenous Fisheries in the North: 1) FISHES Fostering Indigenous Small-scale fisheries for Health, Economy, and food Security) and 2) Advancing Community Biomonitoring, Fishery Assessment and Data Stewardship in Nunavut. Continuing his doctoral research, Johann also studies the impacts of transboundary water governance on the Anishinaabe wild rice economy at Rainy Lake (Ontario, Minnesota). Previous research projects were centered on peasant economies in Upstate New York, Italy and Austria, the implementation of sustainability metrics in US agriculture, and the siting of proposed oil and natural gas pipelines in the United States.
