Back to work: new position at Dalhousie University

I’m returning to the office after a nice August break: time in London, Alberta, British Columbia and Washington state. I’m particularly excited about my new position at Dalhousie University. I’m in the sociology and social anthropology department here and was fortunate to be awarded a Banting post-doc fellowship, so can now pursue my project on mining the Mackenzie River Basin more directly. I’ll also be teaching a course this semester on resource development in Canada and contests/conflicts/confoundings between the state and various First Nations claims, rights, and agreements. Should be very interesting. I’ll be framing the course through the work of Audra Simpson in Mohawk Interruptus. A few new papers should also be out this fall so I’ll post to those as they come out.
