Christine Knott is an interdisciplinary scholar whose research aims to contribute to our understanding of the broader social and ecological ramifications of the current gendered and racialized labour processes within resource extraction and processing industries. Her research focuses on social-ecological aspects of fisheries, and more specifically upon a feminist political ecological analysis of labour force changes in the seafood industry in Canada. These explorations are allowing her to investigate the significance of the interactions among resource-dependent communities, government policies, global corporate capitalism, ecological and economic mobility regimes, and animal enclosure and commodification. Christine has articles published in the Canadian Journal of Sociology, Marine Policy, Acadiensis, Gender, Place and Culture, International Mobilities, and ICES Journal of Marine Science.
