Bio/Research

Professor Rohatynskyj received both of their graduate degrees in Anthropology from the University of Toronto, after having completed a first degree in English Languages and Literature in the United States. Since their initial work with the Őmie of Papua New Guinea, focused on the rare form of gender specific group formation professed by this group, they have pursued research in gender relations.

Over time Professor Rohatynskyj's interests in Papua New Guinea moved to issues of nationhood and identity in the postcolonial state, specifically a regional system of identities in the province of East New Britain, including notions of indigeneity. Having the opportunity to study the impact of a regional development project on women’s empowerment in northern Burkina Faso and more recently the impact of globalization on the livelihoods of the rural poor in central India, gender in development has been a central research focus.

In the present they are pursuing interests in corporate social responsibility and its impact on development practice, comparative regimes of gender and technology specifically in relation to equal access to engineering education and economic anthropology including the growing importance of consumption, migration and trade for local communities.
