Dr. Michelle Daigle

Assistant Professor, Department of Geography, University of British Columbia


Michelle Daigle is Mushkegowuk (Swampy Cree) and a member of the Constance Lake First Nation in Canada. She is a faculty member at UBC, where she researches resource exploitation and gendered forms of dispossession and violence within Indigenous communities in settler-colonial contexts, particularly in her home territory. She is especially interested in the multiple sovereignties mediating Indigenous food systems and the spatial and gendered politics of Indigenous water governance, as they are entangled in colonial capitalist development.

This symposium is made possible with the support of the Institute for Sustainable Solutions, the Toulan School of Urban Studies & Planning, the Graduate School of Education, and the Departments of Environmental Science & Management, History, Public Administration, and Sociology. It is free and open to the public, but RSVP is recommended.
