Vanessa Watts receives SSHRC Insight Development Grant to study Indigenous knowledge

Congratulations to Dr. Vanessa Watts, whose research was successfully funded by the SSHRC Insight Development program.

Jan 30, 2019

The project, "An Indigenist Sociology of Knowledge: Indigenous social lives in Indigenous studies, sociology and political science (1895 and beyond),”  interrogates over a century of representations of Indigenous peoples in sociology and political science. It will contribute to new knowledge in the field of Indigenous studies through inductively generated concept map of Indigenous understandings of social beings. This method centres Indigenous voice and knowledges, and convenes it as an authoritative source of analysis.
