Kavita Reddy received her MA from the Department of Humanities at Simon Fraser University, which she completed in 2016. Since graduation Kavita has continued to develop the questions raised while researching and writing her MA thesis. She is now working on my PhD in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto. Her research aims at examining Canada’s role in shaping the dynamics of global extractivism by attempting to understand the rational-legal context that enables the development of extraction sites.
