Isabelle Boucher (MA in Philosophy) is a PhD student in Communication Studies at Concordia University. Drawing on feminist STS, energy humanities, and waste studies, her research project examines the socio-environmental impacts of energy transition plans. Her current focus is on analyzing how Western epistemologies and ontologies inform current sustainability politics in Quebec and Canada. By considering the triangulation of knowledge, power, and aesthetics through their colonial and extractive histories, she highlights the critical intersection of environmental and social justice issues and argues for the importance of epistemic justice at the heart of decolonial energy imaginaries.
