Part of an ongoing series of Gazette stories celebrating researchers who received support as part of the federal government’s major investment in science and research on Aug. 29.
A research collaboration led by Memorial is receiving a major contribution to strengthen and enhance connections among international Indigenous scholars and community members.
The project, the IndigeLab Network: Building Research Collectives Through Gendered Indigenous Theories of Change, is receiving a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Partnership Grant valued at nearly $2.5 million over seven years.
The initiative is led by Dr. Max Liboiron, professor, Department of Geography, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
“Strong togetherness is a skill — the IndigeLab Network brings together 18 researchers in Canada and the U.S. to innovate ways to bring gendered, Indigenous ways of knowing and doing into lab cultures and other research collectives,” said Dr. Liboiron. “We’ll be sharing knowledge through lab exchanges, elder and artist-in-residence programs, co-publication and co-training.”
