Ignace is a second-year MA student in the Department of Geography at Memorial University of Newfoundland. His current research project (Salmon aquaculture and the problem of containment) focuses on net-pen technologies and practices around containment in the salmon aquaculture sector in Newfoundland. He approaches these technologies and practices as situated and constructive of different kinds of spaces, drawing on insights from both Science and Technology Studies and Geography. His project aims to get at a more nuanced understanding of the role of technologies and containment in the Newfoundland aquaculture industry, and it tries to think through what it could mean to “contain” in a world full of flows, overflows, excesses and entanglements. Before starting at Memorial University, Ignace completed his BA in Philosophy and his BSc in Cultural Anthropology and Developmental Sociology at the University of Amsterdam. After which he worked as a research assistant within the Eating bodies fluid network at the same university.
