I am currently the principal investigator (PI) of the Geographic Indigenous Futures Collaboratory, or ‘GIF (pronounced jif) Lab’ for short. This lab will focus on conducting geographical-based research with Indigenous communities globally with an eye toward promoting political, cultural, and climate-based futures for these communities in an era of climate crisis. We believe strongly in the importance of Indigenous community-led research, and work to support communities in carrying out this work. We also believe in creating space for Indigenous worldviews within formal academic structures within Geography, and more broadly.
We also plan to organize a series of events, including lectures, symposia, and workshops, on a variety of geographical topics and how they intersect with Indigenous perspectives/worldviews.
Please keep an eye on this space for information about the Lab, including future research projects, information on how to join the Lab as an undergraduate/graduate student or researcher, and future events/workshops/symposia.
