Co-Chair

Tribal Affiliation: Potawatomi

City and Regional Planning, Ph.D Student

Dylan Stevenson's research focuses on the agency of Indigenous communities within the planning process, both on tribal lands and urban areas. His research interests investigate how tribal epistemologies and land relations influence the conceptualization of the future and culturally appropriate methods of creating such futures. More specifically, he focuses on the role of food systems as a means of developing sovereignty that also promotes the revitalization of cultural practices of marginalized communities, namely Indigenous communities in North America. His other interests include urban design, intergovernmental collaborations, and utopian thought. He holds a bachelor's degree in linguistics from the University of California–Davis, and a master's degree in planning from the University of Southern California.
