ArcticNet - About us

Tara Cater
MA Candidate
Memorial University of Newfoundland

I am a graduate student with the Geography Department, Memorial University working on the ArcticNet funded project "Adaptation, Industrial Development, and Arctic Communities," supervised by Dr. Arn Keeling. My research aims to recast mining in the Kivalliq Region of Nunavut as a cultural "encounter," framing mineral development as a force that triggers new relationships of power between multiple actors including northern communities, workers, and mining companies. My overarching research interests centre on (post)colonial spaces of cross-cultural contact and coexistence between Indigenous and non-Indigenous actors.
