Holly Moulton

Assistant Professor of Sustainability

I am a feminist political ecologist specializing in climate justice, particularly in mountain regions. My research focuses on Quechua women’s lived experiences of climate change adaptation and processes of futuremaking in the glaciated Peruvian Cordillera Blanca. I am also interested in how race and gender are represented in national climate change adaptation planning and policies in Peru and beyond. My teaching focuses broadly on how narratives of vulnerability and gender are represented and contested by diverse actors in climate change adaptation policies and management. I often conduct research and publish with multidisciplinary teams of local people, glaciologists, hydrologists, social scientists, humanists, and technical professionals in mountain regions across the globe. Both my teaching and research revolve around a deep commitment to generating collaborative, community-centered knowledge spaces and promoting intersectional environmental justice.
