Social sciences and humanities help us examine the challenges of energy systems. Take a look as alumni research the experiences of Indigenous oil and gas workers.
The Challenge: How does the experience of rural Indigenous oilfield workers, on and off reserve, differ from that of other workers?
The Research: For the Parkland Institute, Angele Alook interviewed Indigenous people at work in oil and gas. Social science researchers wanted to fill a knowledge gap about the experiences of these workers.
The Players:Angele Alook, ’02 BA, ’05 MA, researcher Ian Hussey, and Department of Sociology grad student Nicole Hill
