Janina is the granddaughter of Dutch immigrants, raised on beautiful Sitsika territory in Alberta and since transplanted as a grateful and uninvited guest to the stolen, ancestral, and traditional lands of the Coast Salish Peoples. A strong passion for social justice and anti-oppression has guided her through various educational disciplines, from biology, theology, and public health, to her current educational home doing a PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies at UBC with Dr. Helen Brown, Dr. Susan Cox, and Dr. Lyana Patrick. Her research focuses on white women’s complicity in colonial violence and uses arts-based methods to surface reflections, resistance, and collective stories. Janina loves drinking tea, especially over conversations of dismantling the heteropatriarchal, colonial systems of power and privilege. She is thrilled to be part of the dynamic, collaborative, and all-around awesome group of humans that is the ARC. Janina would love to have tea with you; just send her an email.
