EDGES member, Evelyn Arriagada, has been awarded a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship, administered by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada! Congratulations, Evelyn!

Evelyn Arriagada is a PhD student at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability (UBC), supervised by Professor Leila Harris. Her research interests include subjective experiences of environmental suffering, collective action, and political linkages, and gender-environment relationships in territorial conflicts. Her PhD thesis will be focused on women’s activism in water struggles in Chile. Following a Feminist Political Ecology approach, she wants to understand potential shifts in personal identities, gender dynamics, and relationships with water that women experiment through the process of becoming activists.

Evelyn is an anthropologist and MA in social sciences, both from the Universidad of Chile and also MA in Political and Social Sciences, from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Spain). Before joining EDGES, she has worked as an Assistant Professor and Academic Coordinator at the Sociology Department of the Diego Portales University (Chile). Since 2016, she has led the Territorial and Environmental Inequalities Research Programme in the Observatory of Social Inequalities at that university, in which she has researched, taught, and worked with non-academic organizations about different environmental conflicts in Chile.
