Matthew Henry is an Assistant Instructional Professor in the Honors College at the University of Wyoming. His research and teaching interests lie broadly in the environmental humanities, with a specific focus on environmental and climate justice, coloniality, water and energy systems, and just transition frameworks. He is particularly interested in the ways cultural narratives impact climate policymaking and how existing social liberation movements play a critical role in working toward anti-racist, decolonial environmental futures. His first book, Hydronarratives: Water, Environmental Justice, and a Just Transition (University of Nebraska Press), was published in 2023. He is currently working on a second book focused on climate coloniality, origin stories, and the geopolitics of climate change. His research has appeared or is forthcoming in Energy Research & Social Science, Contemporary Social Science, Environmental Humanities, ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and the Environment, and elsewhere. At the University of Wyoming, he has conducted community-engaged and federally-funded research on environmental justice, energy transitions, and far-right politics in the rural U.S. west. His work on just energy transitions has been widely cited, including by the IPCC in the Working Group II report as part of the Sixth Assessment, published in 2022.
