Nicole Ritchie (She/Her)
Research Grants Officer, Indigenous Research Support Team
Nicole Ritchie (she/her) is a third-generation settler of white European ancestry who was born and raised on Treaty 6 territory in Amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton). She joined the Indigenous Research Support Team after completing a PhD in Social and Political Thought at York University and working as a Research Associate within the SSHRC-funded Thinking Through the Museum Research Network.
As a researcher, Nicole focused on 2SLGBTQ+ cultures and communities and the sociohistorical politics of storytelling in institutional spaces, especially within museums in the settler colonial context known as Canada. In her role of Research Grants Officer, she provides support to Indigenous scholars and Indigenous research projects for finding, obtaining, and maintaining research funding, which includes the navigation of internal and external institutional processes and the advocation for Indigenous ways of knowing, doing, being, and connecting within application processes, research conception, and knowledge mobilization.
