Linguistic sustainability, local knowledge, and transformation in the Arctic

Donna Patrick is an anthropologist whose research focuses on Indigenous and minority language politics, policies, rights, and practices in Canada and the Arctic. This research has revolved around the issues of language endangerment, language socialization, language education policy and practice, critical literacies, and social semiotics. Most recently, she has been involved in participatory action research and the recording of life histories and stories with Inuit in Ottawa and Montreal. This research explores Inuit identities, literacies, and the construction of place in transnational contexts through objects, food, and community radio.
