Biography


  • Emilie Cameron is in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies. Her work primarily concerns geographies of Arctic mineral development, and the ways in which mining interweaves with comprehensive land claim agreements, environmental assessment institutions, Indigenous self-determination movements, and histories of colonial knowledge production. In the past, she has published on how colonial narratives of violence and mental health are used by government to intervene into the lives of Indigenous children and families in Canada, and was also commissioned by the National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health to provide a comprehensive report on the state of knowledge on Inuit public health.
