Webinar: Hidden Participants and Unheard Voices: Gender, Age, and other influences on Traditional Ecological Knowledge Research in the North
January 29, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) is widely discussed in academic research as having value for understanding how ecosystems are changing because of climate change. Some scholars have noted that TEK, especially when brought into discussions of environmental planning and management, takes on a distinctly political character, one that can be either disruptive to or co-opted by existing systems of colonial power and exploitation of indigenous peoples. Yet, there has been little critical evaluation of research on TEK and climate change, to explore whose voices in this research are being privileged or marginalized.
