Research

research overview

  • Dr. Carroll's research explores the intersection of Indigenous governance and Indigenous environmental perspectives in settler state contexts. He studies the ability of Native nations to assert sovereignty over their lands and the extent to which this enables the perpetuation of unique ecological knowledges and practices. A citizen of the Cherokee Nation, his work on Cherokee political and environmental history, environmental governance, and ethnobotany informs his long-term research agenda to develop a sovereignty-based political-ecological approach to Indigenous environmental issues.
