Zoltán Grossman (with Alex McCarty) edited and published the 132-page Evergreen student book “Removing Barriers: Restoring Salmon Watersheds through Tribal Alliances,” as part of their “Conceptualizing Place: Pacific Northwest Native Art and Geographies” program. The online book focuses on dams, dikes, and culverts in Pacific Northwest watersheds, and features original student artwork and maps. He presented on the project to the 2022 American Association of Geographers conference. As an outgrowth of his Pandemic Academy lecture, and research on Indigenous American and Maori disaster resilience, he published the 4-part article series “The Resilience Doctrine: A Primer on Disaster Collectivism in the Climate and Pandemic Crises” in Counterpunch. He wrote a Monthly Review book review of Nick Estes and Jaskiran Dhillion’s edited collection “Standing with Standing Rock,” and co-wrotea chapter on Indigenous research ethics in “Research Ethics for Human Geography: A Handbook for Students” (SAGE Publishing). Zoltán has also published political geography articles in Common Dreams, Counterpunch, and other publications on militant far-right movements, military deployments against U.S. protests, the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
