Details about Drew Gerkey and linked projects and collaborations.
My research synthesizes perspectives from environmental and evolutionary anthropology to examine the emergence and stability of cooperation. I explore the dynamic tension between individual and collective interests. Using a mixed-method ethnographic approach, I examine cooperation in diverse contexts and explore links across multiple scales of human-environment interaction, including: subsistence activities, food-sharing networks, common-pool resources, institutions, and social movements. I have conducted 22 months of ethnographic research with salmon fishers and reindeer herders on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Far East of Siberia. I am also beginning research with Alaskan Native salmon fishers in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta Region. On both sides of the Pacific, I synthesize scientific and engaged anthropology to generate insights that enhance the sustainable and just use of natural resources.
