Daviken Studnicki-Gizbert

Associate professor, Department of History, McGill University

I am a historian who works on the political ecologies created by, and around, mining extraction in Latin America. It's a theme that I have pursued from a number of angles: longue-durée historical research on mining in Mexico and Panama; public interest documentation of contemporary Canadian mining companies in Latin America; as well community-based monitoring, cartography and history in collaboration with Ngäbé, Buglé and campesino organizations in Panama. I teach environmental, global and Latin American history at McGill University.
