Indigenous Theorizing, Resiliency, and Climate Justice
I am a PhD student in the Department of Communication. My research examines climate justice activism within international discourse and unpacks how the way we describe and define climate change influences the possibilities for climate action. My current work draws on textual analysis and participatory research methods to analyze worldwide Indigenous communities’ climate activism within the United Nations climate change conferences. I am invested in how these climate justice rhetorics can intervene within colonial frameworks and orient the global community towards more just futures.
