Brenda is a PhD student in Anthropology focusing on identity-group conflict and conflict resolution—worldview differences, cultural factors, power dynamics, and attitude change in conflict resolution processes.  These interests grow out of her MA in Peace and Conflict Studies, as well as work with international development NGOs in conflict zones.  In South Sudan, she worked to ensure that Oxfam-Quebec’s health care programming would be sensitive to the potential pitfalls of bringing significant resources into a situation of complex conflict; in the Philippines, she documented grassroots peacebuilding initiatives involving Muslim, Christian, and indigenous community members, and in Aceh, Indonesia, she participated in post-disaster reconstruction in a context of recent civil war.

Brenda currently serves as Assistant Advocacy Officer with the Graduate Student Society.

MA: Kroc Institute for International Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Notre Dame (Indiana)

Research interests: peacebuilding and conflict resolution, transitional justice environment and resource conflict, Africa, First Nations
