Gabrielle Slowey is the inaugural Fulbright Chair in Arctic Studies (2016-2017), at the Dickey Center for International Understanding and the Institute of Arctic Studies at Dartmouth College. She currently serves as the Director of the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies at York University where she is an associate Professor in the Department of Political Science (Toronto, ON).  She teaches courses in Canadian, Aboriginal and Arctic Politics. Her current research investigates the intersection between ecological governance, unconventional resource extraction, Indigenous peoples, and the state in multiple regions (ranging from the provincial north, ie. Northern Alberta, Northern Quebec, Northern Ontario, to the Arctic proper, including Yukon, NWT and circumpolar north). Her current research concentrates on pressures to develop shale gas reserves and investigates the variation in response by local communities. She is the author of Navigating Neoliberalism: Self-Determination and the Mikisew Cree First Nation (UBC Press, 2008) and numerous publications.
