Research and Teaching Interests
In her Ph.D., Andrea explored how cultural constructs about indigeneity influence economic and political relations in Nunatsiavut, and how the production of difference functions as an integral component of resource management in Labrador. Her postdoctoral research will focus on non-Indigenous people’s understandings of their role in the relationship with Indigenous people concerning resources in Labrador.
