Macey Flood has received an Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellowship for the academic year 2019-2020 through the Institute for the Environment here at the University of Minnesota. Macey describes the intersections between her work and IonE as follows: "My dissertation is a historical analysis of health, power, and environment within Ojibwe and settler American communities in the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century western Great Lakes.  My research shows how plants, medicine, and botanically-based medical practices were and are central to regional processes of settler colonialism and Native sovereignty.  I will be working with anthropologist David Syring at the Institute on the Environment (IonE) to bring an interdisciplinary approach to my dissertation research, using both historical and anthropological methodologies to maps intersections foundational to contemporary health inequities, ecological changes, and stakeholder disagreements over land."

Congratulations, Macey!!
