Joseph Whitson works at the intersection of environmental humanities, indigenous studies, and public history.

He is the founder of Indigenous Geotags, a digital humanities project highlighting the indigenous history of public lands, and serves as co-chair of the American Indian and Indigenous Studies Workshop.
