Dr. Frankie Young, Ph.D. ‘21

Her thesis is titledEtuaptmumk: Considering Indigenous Economic Development Through Two-Eyed Seeing and was supervised by Professors P.M. Vasudev and Larry Chartrand.The thesis is “grounded in the Mi’kmaq principle of Etuaptmumk, Two-Eyed Seeing—concerned with engaging multiple perspectives. Two-Eyed Seeing may assist in removing legal constraints by first providing a framework for seeing and understanding some of those constraints imposed by a dominant worldview that does not contemplate various perspectives.”

Professor Young obtained her JD and LLM from the University of Saskatchewan.Professor Young is currently an Assistant Professor at the Lincoln Alexander School of Law and will become Assistant Professor in the Common Law Section (English Program) in July 2022.
