Arn Keeling’s research and publications focus on the environmental historical geography of Western and Northern Canada. In recent years, his research has explored the historical and contemporary encounters of northern Indigenous communities with large-scale resource developments. He was co-investigator on a multi-site, multi-year SSHRC project examining abandoned mines in Northern Canada, a project which spawned a collaborative project on the toxic legacies of Giant Mine in Yellowknife, NWT, Canada. He is leading a new SSHRC project investigating the historical-geography of pollution and contaminants in Northern Canada. He is also interested in historical-geographical approaches to environmental science, political ecology and environmental justice. He serves as co-editor of the journal Historical Geography (2015-20).
