Andrew Curley recently received a research grant from the Wenner-Gren Foundation for the project “The End of Navajo Coal,” which builds on his dissertation work on the social nature of coal in the Navajo Nation (2013-2014). Andrew’s follow up project traces how the unexpected shutting down of Navajo coal mines is informing indigenous resource politics and livelihoods.The amount of the grant is $16,868. Dr. Curley plans to update his dissertation research and re-interview Navajo coal workers and community members on the decline of the Navajo coal industry. The duration of the project is from January of 2018 until July 2018.
