After a first experience of Master 1 within the Department of Marine Resources in
Papeete in 2021 at the “lagoon fishing” service, Emilie continues her studies by completing an internship of Master 2 in an ANR project entitled “Non-Aristotelian cartographies of the practices of fishing in Moorea” – HITI (ANR-21-CE27-0012) – and coordinated by Teriitutea Quesnot (2022-2026).
Emilie is currently doing a PhD thesis in Geography at the University of Brittany
Occidentale (UBO) (2022-2025) under the supervision of Louis Brigand (Professor Emeritus, UBO),Tamatoa Bambridge (Research Director, CNRS) and Teriitutea Quesnot (Lecturer,UBO). His work focuses on spatial affectivities and geosymbols of lagoon fishing in Moorea. More specifically, it studies the practices of lagoon fishing according tothree complementary axes: (1) mental representations and human-environment connections; (2) spatial affectivities; (3) geosymbols (i.e. cultural highlights). His research is an extension of the work carried out as part of his Master 2 internship.
