Biographie

Audrey Giles exerce l’anthropologie culturelle appliquée auprès des communautés autochtones, notamment dans l’Arctique et la région subarctique. Ses recherches se divisent en trois grands axes : i) la prévention des blessures, particulièrement la prévention des noyades dans le Grand Nord canadien; ii) la promotion de la santé, notamment la participation des Autochtones à des activités physiques selon le genre et les ressources d’adaptation culturelle; iii) le rôle du sport dans le développement au sein des communautés autochtones. Audrey Giles est chercheuse principale de trois projets de recherche subventionnés par le Conseil de recherche en sciences humaines du Canada (deux subventions ordinaires et une Subvention Savoir) et Co-chercheuse pour un autre projet de recherche financé par une subvention ordinaire du même organisme. La professeure Giles a reçu du financement de l’Agence de santé du Canada (en collaboration avec la Société canadienne de la Croix-Rouge), de Transports Canada (avec la collaboration de l’Association des parcs et des loisirs des Territoires du Nord-Ouest) et de Santé Canada (avec la collaboration de la Ville de Pangnirtung au Nunavut). Elle a travaillé à contrat au Centre Wabano de la santé des Autochtones, chez Action Cancer Ontario et chez Éducation physique et santé Canada. Elle a publié plus de 70 articles dans des revues savantes et plus de 15 chapitres de livre. Son ouvrage intitulé Aboriginal peoples in Canada: Historical perspectives and contemporary issues, qu’elle a codirigé avec Janice Forsyth, a remporté le prix de la meilleure direction d’un ouvrage collectif, remis par la North American Society for the Sociology of Sport. Ses anciens étudiants et ses étudiants actuels au premier cycle et aux études supérieures, communément appelés membres de l’« équipe Giles », ont tous reçu d’importants prix et bourses, dont les plus prestigieux au Canada.
