Arn Keeling (Memorial University)

My research and publications focus on the environmental-historical geography of Western and Northern Canada, and include studies of domestic and industrial pollution, environmental politics, and the history of the conservation/environmental movement.

In recent years, my research has explored the historical and contemporary encounters of northern Indigenous communities with large-scale resource developments. I am co-investigator on a multi-site, multi-year project examining abandoned mines in Northern Canada. I am also interested in historical-geographical approaches to environmental science, political ecology and environmental justice.

WaSTE - WaSTE (Waste and Science, Technology & Environment) is an interdisciplinary research hub based at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. Whether we are studying arsenic from mining waste in the far north, electronic waste in outer space, or plastic pollution in oceans and bodies, we critically examine the confluence of social and material “matters of concern” as they pertain to waste, broadly defined, using theories and methods from Science and Technology Studies (STS).
