Casellas Connors, John Assistant Professor


John Casellas Connors is an assistant professor in the Department of Geography at Texas A&M University. Prior to joining Texas A&M, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Boston University's Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future. He is a human-environment geographer whose research primarily addresses the politics of conservation and wildlife management. His research combines concepts and approaches from political ecology, land change science, legal geographies, and more than human geography. His ongoing research projects examine the politics of white-tailed deer management in suburban communities as well as the intersections of gun politics and conservation politics. Through this work he explores how people make decisions about living with and killing animals, and how existing wildlife management institutions shape the possibilities for human-animal coexistence. In addition, he has ongoing research projects related to food and water security, particularly food pantry access.
