Cindy Isenhour is an Associate Professor of Anthropology and Climate Change at the University of Maine. Her research interests focus on environmental governance, particularly practices and policies intended to reduce the climate, environmental and social impacts of linear production-consumption-disposal systems. Isenhour examines these issues through the lens of global environmental justice and ecologically unequal exchange. She is the author of more than 30 peer-reviewed journal articles and has co-edited three books focused at the intersection of environmental policy and global economic systems.
Leaving behind her early aspirations to be a back-up singer, Isenhour is living her dream in rural Maine where the mountains and coasts call (and she can still sing without anyone hearing!)
