CCJ Year-End Fest: Dr. Zoe Todd Keynote Address


We welcomed Dr. Zoe Todd as our keynote speaker for the Centre for Climate Justice Year-End Fest on December 5th.

Dr. Zoe Todd is an Associate Professor of Indigenous studies at Simon Fraser University and Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Governance and Freshwater Fish Futures.

They are a Red River Métis scholar from Edmonton, Alberta who studies the relationships between freshwater fish futures and Indigenous sovereignty in Canada, with a particular focus on freshwater fish relationships in Dr. Todd’s home province of Alberta. As an artist-researcher, Dr. Todd employs diverse methods including artistic research-creation, immersive social science approaches, and ‘critical Indigenous fish philosophy’ to help dynamic collectives assert the well-being of fish in the face of complex challenges.
