Daniel Sarna-Wojcicki is a PhD candidate in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, division of Society and Environment. His research is on epistemic justice and community-based knowledge generation in democratic environmental governance. He is particularly interested in watershed democracy, a form of hydrologically-grounded political association that attempts to engage all watershed inhabitants in producing knowledge and making decisions about the management of their watersheds. For his dissertation, Daniel is researching the history and cultural politics of watershed-based governance in the Klamath River Basin in northern California, looking specifically at how different integrated resource management policies influence Karuk Tribal sovereignty, territory and access to cultural resources. He is comparing watershed-based governance with other bioregional scales and social formations such as firesheds and foodsheds, to examine how scalar politics and epistemic practices vary across different arenas of Klamath environmental governance.
