Leni Charbonneau is a senior at Marlboro College, graduating with a Plan of Concentration in Human Geography and Asian Studies. During her time at Marlboro, Leni has been active in the World Studies Program, through which she traveled to conduct research and field work in Northern Japan. Since 2018, she has been a researcher at the Centre for Environmental and Minority Policy Studies based in Sapporo, Japan. With this Centre, she has worked closely with activists and organizations representative of Japan’s Ainu community- the native inhabitants of the country’s northernmost island. Through this work, Leni has also worked with transnational Indigenous coalitions, most often assisting with initiatives rooted in Arctic and northern environments. In her academic work, she is interested in the transmission of environmental knowledge across cultures in different geopolitical contexts.
