Jackie is interested in how ecological context shapes our ideas of time and place within Central and Inner Asia. Her current research examines Soviet collectivization and its attendant policy in pastoral sedentarization, interrogating forms of indigenous resistance and movement in the contexts of structural violence or impossibility. Her research interests reside at the nexus of the making of the nation-state, ecology and violence to think about "more than human histories."
