Education and Training
Ken Caine is Assistant Professor of Sociology at University of Alberta. His research focuses on social practices, power dynamics, and institutional bricolage in environmental matters. Ken’s educational and experiential background in natural science (forestry, ecology) and social science (sociology, extension) provides me with the tools needed to move between these research areas. Ken completed his doctoral research with the community of Délı̨nę on Indigenous land governance issues specifically around cultural landscapes and watershed management where the power of stories interact with political power structures suggesting stories and land-use as forms of governance. Ken is interested in the intersection of power, culture, and environmental and resource governance in circumpolar regions as well as areas where communities face development issues around energy, water and climate change.
