Chantelle Marlor  chantel marlor

has a Ph.D. in Sociology and her interdisciplinary work draws on ecology, anthropology, philosophy and psychology.  Her sociological interests are in the creation of biological/ecological knowledge and how culture impacts how knowledge is produced.  For her dissertation research, she worked with four different types of clam experts–contaminant ecologists, invertebrate biologists, Kwakiutl commercial clam diggers, and Nuu-chah-nulth clam diggers–as they developed knowledge about clams.   Previous to that, she worked with a number of indigenous elders and harvesters from inside and outside of Canada, all of whom have their own form of ecological expertise.
