Faculty Bio

Janice Harvey has taught part-time at St. Thomas University since 2009. She holds a regular appointment in the Environment and Society Program, teaching courses in environmental problems, perspectives on the environment and environmental policy. Harvey earned her Bachelor of Education (B. Ed. 1977) and her Masters of Philosophy in Policy Studies (Philosphy, Politics, Economics) (MPhil, PPE, 2009) at the University of New Brunswick. She received a SSHRC doctoral award and expects to complete the requirements for an Interdisciplinary PhD at UNB in 2016. Her research fields are Green politics, the role of discourse in hegemonic struggle, and the cultural-political paradox of post-ecologism, or ‘sustaining the unsustainable.’ She spent most of the years between her first two degrees working for the Conservation Council of New Brunswick, a not-for-profit environmental organization. There, she was actively involved in policy development, policy analysis and policy advocacy at both provincial and federal levels. This first-hand experience, combined with her academic background, allows her to bring a unique perspective to the policy studies classroom.
