Dawn Hoogeveen and Claudia Sepúlveda recently completed their dissertations in geography at UBC. It was my pleasure to support their important work. Congratulations to both for reaching the end of one road and best of luck in forging new paths.
Dr.Sepúlveda’s dissertation is entitled Swans, ecological struggles and ontological fractures: a posthumanist account of the Río Cruces disaster in Valdivia, Chile.
Dr. Hoogeveen’s thesis is Geographies of settler colonial dispossession: rejecting gold and prosperity on Tsilhqot’in territory.
