2017 Profile PictureMy name is Trish Audette-Longo, and I’m a Canadian journalist finishing a PhD in the Joint Doctorate in Communication program at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.

Broadly, I ask questions about the kinds of stories we tell ourselves about oil, energy, and natural resource extraction in Canada and around the world. My research focuses on media practices, including how First Nations and Métis communities create and negotiate media in connection to Canada’s oil sands and proposed pipelines.

I hold a Bachelor of Journalism and Minor in History from Carleton University (2004) and an MSc in Media, Communication and Development from the London School of Economics and Political Science (2011).

Between 2012-2015, my research was supported by the Faculty of Arts and Science Graduate Fellowship at Concordia University, and between 2014-2017, I held a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).

My academic work has appeared in the International Journal of Communication, ResilienceTopia and the Canadian Journal of Communication. I am also an executive committee member of the Association for Literature, Environment, and Culture in Canada.

In June 2017, I began working with National Observer. Previously, I’ve worked at The Edmonton Journal (2005-2012), The Standard in St. Catharines, Ont. (2003; 2004-2005), and the Vancouver Island News Group in Victoria, B.C. (2002). My writing has appeared in a cross-section of Postmedia publications, as well as J-SourceAlberta Views, and the Hill Times.

To find my way to professional journalism, I worked for the Creston Valley Advance when I was growing up in British Columbia’s East Kootenays, and at Carleton I volunteered for and later edited the national section of the independent student newspaper The Charlatan. 

This website is designed as a showcase for some of my journalism and academic work, but it is not associated with any current or former employers.
