Yellowstone National Park

In December 2018, Sanctuary Lab convened a team of researchers spanning humanities, sciences, and arts to investigate the intersecting ecological, political, and cultural forces shaping one of America’s most important secular sanctuaries: Yellowstone National Park. In collaboration with local scholars and professionals—a key aspect of our method—we examined Indigenous Peoples’ relations with YNP, climate scenario modeling, bison management, and the social science of policy conflict.
