Michael Fabris (Krebs)
Assimilation, Place, and Indigenous Identity in the Era of Reconciliation
Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree?
I wanted to continue the research and theorizing I had been doing as a long-time Indigenous activist but in a more focused and concerted manner. Graduate school has provided me a crucial space for this. Once I am finished I hope to become a professor, either in Geography or Indigenous Studies.
Why did you decide to study at UBC?
There is some amazing scholarship happening at UBC, especially within Geography and the Institute of Critical Indigenous Studies. Given my research, UBC was hands down the best place for me to pursue my doctoral research.
