Jared Talley, PhD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Boise State University School of Public Service
Dr. Jared L. Talley is an environmental philosopher by training, but an interdisciplinary scholar in practice. He seeks to better understand how diverse communities relate to the land and how this relationship poses obstacles and opportunities for collaboration and governance. In doing so, he studies the role of science in collaborative policy, the role of place in environmental identity, and the role of the imagination in mediating both. Specifically, he studies grazing management and public land permitting, community-led monitoring programs, rural place-based education, rural conservation collaboration, and the imaginative experience of our natural and built environments — all in the contexts of the intermountain American West.
