Update on Fish‑WIKS recent PhD Recipient Dr. Latulippe

Posted by Nicole Latulippe on February 1, 2018 in News

Since completing her PhD, Fish-WIKS’ most recent PhD graduate Dr. Nicole Latulippe has been busy working. She is currently teaching at University of Toronto Scarborough campus for a geography course. The geography course is called Indigenous Environmental Knowledges and offers an exploration of the field of Indigenous environmental knowledge, with a focus on Canada. As knowledge cannot be separated from the people, the land, or from governance (decision-making), emphasis is placed on Indigenous peoples’ perspectives and their evolving role in natural resource management and environmental governance. Attending to Indigenous worldviews and self-determining practices, students will consider Indigenous environmental knowledges within an appropriate and respectful cultural and political context. Students will also exercise critical thinking with regards to the policy frameworks through which Indigenous environmental knowledge is engaged.

She is also a Research Associate at York University for the Indigenous Law, Justice and Research Theory and Practice under the supervision of Dr. Deb McGregor. In this role Nicole carries out research and coordinates research activities on three research project: Indigenous environmental justice, Indigenizing the First Nations Land Management Act, and Indigenous land protocols.
