Background and expertise

Matt Henry is a Scholar in Residence in the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources. His research focuses on the environmental humanities, the energy humanities, environmental justice, and the human dimensions of climate change. Matt is particularly interested in what cultural representations -- literature, art, film, and other media -- can teach us about the historical roots and contemporary dynamics of environmental issues associated with natural resource extraction. Additional areas of expertise include 20th and 21st-century literature and culture of the United States (particularly in the western U.S.), speculative fiction and film, and cultural representations of climate change.  

Currently part of the Humanities for the Environment North American Observatory, Matt has published work in Environmental Humanities, ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and the Environment, the Modern Language Association’s “Approaches to Teaching” series, Edge Effects: A Digital Magazine, and elsewhere. He has also published short fiction in High Country News and given invited talks at Stanford University and the Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technology Research Center at Arizona State University. Matt teaches a range of interdisciplinary undergraduate courses that explore environmental literature, film, and art; environmental justice; energy and natural resource systems; nature writing; and the human dimensions of climate change.
