Christine Jean

I am deeply passionate about exploring the relationships between people and their natural environments. My thesis investigates the interplay between cultural practices, traditional ecological knowledge, and ecological change. Holding a Bachelor of Arts with First Class Honours in Anthropology and a minor in History, I am committed to environmental anthropology. My current research focuses on the eco-emotional impacts of environmental change, specifically the decline of wild Atlantic salmon populations on communities along the Main Southwest Miramichi River in New Brunswick, Canada

As part of my Master's thesis at the University of New Brunswick, I integrate environmental anthropology with narrative analysis and ethnographic methods to examine eco-emotions. My work seeks to uncover the connections between human and more-than-human worlds, highlighting the cultural, ecological, and emotional ramifications of our current global state. Driven by a commitment to understanding and articulating how individuals and communities experience and respond to environmental challenges, my academic pursuits emphasize the importance of ecological empathy and community-based approaches to environmental stewardship.
