Congratulations Dr. Nandini Thiyagarajan

Congratulations to Dr. Nandini Thiyagarajan on being the co-recipient of a SSHRC Insight Grant! The funding ($319,473.00) will support a project entitled Racialized Ecologies. The project, whose principal investigator is Dr. Cheryl Lousely (Lakehead University), focuses on “how three aesthetic modes – the poetic, the documentary, and the speculative – are used by Indigenous, Black, Latinx, and Asian-diasporic writers, filmmakers, and artists to grapple with and change debilitating political ecologies.” As co-applicant, Dr. Thiyagarajan will contribute to the research team by focusing her research activities on invasive and migratory animals in Canada as well as diasporic and Indigenous literature.
