Sheehan Moore is a doctoral student in cultural anthropology at the Graduate Center. His research centers on oil and gas infrastructure and land loss in coastal Louisiana. This work is situated within a broader view for the ways that land and crisis are claimed and re-defined by protest, sovereignty movements, and coastal land use planning. With land loss accelerated by climate change and extraction-related subsidence, claims to present and future territory acquire an additional urgency, mobilizing communities while also multiplying opportunities for intervention by state and private capital. Sheehan approaches these dynamics through his work with the Climate Action Lab as well as in his position as a Student Fellow at the Advanced Research Collaborative. He is a co-coordinator at the CUNY Adjunct Project.
