Meredith Alberta Palmer is a Tuscarora, Haudenosaunee Ph.D. candidate in the department of Geography at the University of California, Berkeley. Her work builds on growing fields of research on the role of science and technology in histories of dispossession and in the ongoing colonization of indigenous people, exploring contemporary and historic biomedical and public health practices at moments when (settler) colonial dynamics are made visible through the racialization of individuals and collectives.
