Dr. Nolin's current research projects explores the twin concepts of violence and development in the context of the Canadian mining companies operating in Guatemala and Peru. Qualitative, community-based research explores the social and political dimensions of natural resource extraction on Indigenous lands carried out in the name of development.’ Additionally, partnerships with the Guatemalan Forensic Anthropology Foundation (FAFG) and the Peruvian Forensic Anthropology Team (EPAF) enable research and teaching opportunities that build on geography’s interdisciplinary approaches to issues of social justice, human rights, war crimes, and contemporary experiences of structural violence.
