Peter Alagona is an associate professor of history, geography, and environmental studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Pete received his PhD in history from UCLA and completed postdoctoral fellowships at Harvard and Stanford. An environmental historian, historian of science, and nature-culture geographer, his work explores what happens when humans share space and resources (their habitats) with other species: how we interact with non-human creatures, how we make sense of these interactions, why we fight so much about them, what we can learn from them, and how we might use these lessons to foster a more just and sustainable society. Pete is the author of more than four-dozen publications, including After the Grizzly: Endangered Species and the Politics of Place in California (California, 2013).
