University of Oxford - Linacre College

(Biography) Dominique is currently a D.Phil. Candidate in Geography & the Environment at the University of Oxford. She holds an M.Sc. in Environmental Change and Management (Oxford), an M.A. in Creative Writing specialized in Environmental Journalism (McGill), as well as a B.A. in Anthropology and French Literature (McGill). Over the past four years, her research in the Canadian Arctic has led her to work in collaboration with wildlife biologists, elders, hunters, teachers, students and government representatives to document and discuss Inuit ecological knowledge, as well as to study the practices of wildlife biology. Her current research explores the role of Inuit knowledge and western science in contemporary environmental governance in the Nunavut Territory. The goal of Dominique’s doctoral work is to support northerners and Nunavummiut in developing policies and practices that meaningfully engage both Inuit and scientific traditions in the governance of wildlife and natural resources. Her research is grounded in the disciplines of science and technology studies (STS), ecological anthropology and political ecology.
