Daviken Studnicki-Gizbert teaches Latin American and environmental history at McGill University. His main research interest is the history of extractivism in Latin America, which he is exploring in a book-length study of mining in San Luis Potosí, Mexico, as well as a comparative study of the social production of time and territory among the Ngöbé of Panama and the Innu of the Labrador Plateau. Since 2007 he has acted as coordinator of MICLA, a joint student-faculty research collective based at McGill that examines contemporary Canadian mining in Latin America.
