Madeline's PhD research is about borders and bordering, plants and planting, and people and their perception of possibility. This research focuses on the manifestations of a geopolitical boundary (Canada/USA) imposed on the Okanagan and Similkameen watersheds through an investigation of how people engage with the cottonwood riparian forests that span the boundary line, and how the riparian communities reflect that engagement. This research takes place with the lands of the Syilx (Okanagan) peoples.
