Corrie Grosse began teaching at CSB/SJU in the fall of 2017. She specializes in the intersection of energy, climate justice and grassroots activism. Her current research examines how Native and non-Native communities and organizations in Minnesota work together to resist the Line 3 tar sands pipeline and build Native-led renewable energy. Her book, Working Across Lines: Resisting Extreme Energy Extraction, explores how communities in Idaho and California build effective energy coalitions across differences in political views, race and ethnicity, age, and strategic preferences. She also has studied the priorities and concerns of youth climate justice activists at the United Nations climate change negotiations, the exclusion of Indigenous peoples and values from these negotiations, and how Ecuadorian women who work in Fairtrade rose production balance work and family. Originally from Teton Valley, Idaho, she loves being outside. Some of her favorite activities are running, biking, hiking, x-country skiing, bandy ball, and making good food with family and friends.
