Marie-Pierre Bousquet is a full professor in the Department of Anthropology at the Université de Montréal and the director of the undergraduate Indigenous Studies Program, which she created. Passionate about indigenous issues in the world and especially in Canada, she has been working closely with Algonquin communities in Quebec for about 20 years. As a field researcher, her interests are varied: relationship with the land; religious landscape; empowerment of women; impacts of the residential school system; transmission of history; intergenerational relations; and ethics. In her research, publications and practice, she focuses on the ethical beliefs of the Amerindians with whom she collaborates, as well as on the relationships she builds with them, so that the research is conducted in a respectful and participatory manner.
She was a member and then vice-chair of a research ethics committee at the Université de Montréal. She also served as director of a committee on conflicts of interest.
