Nadine Changfoot is Associate Professor and Chair of Political Studies at Trent University. She is also Senior Research Affiliate with Re-Vision: The Centre for Creative and Collaborative Inquiry, at the University of Guelph. Her research is collaborative, addressing and producing art at the intersection of politics, arts activism, and community-campus engagement. It includes methods and ethics of research creation for multimedia, digital storytelling and complex cross-sectoral partnerships that address the state, the non-profit sector, aggrieved communities, and the academy. Nadine partners with disability, First Nations, older-adult identified women, queer and trans individuals to screen their digital stories to audiences in healthcare, education, and advocacy settings, and to create knowledge for social change at the edges of the academy.
She is a research lead on two community-university, SSHRC funded, 7 year projects: Bodies in Translation (BIT): Activist Art, Technology and Access to Life, and Community First (CFICE): Impacts of Community-Campus Engagement. She is very excited to be part of EC3, energizing and sustaining Peterborough’s vibrant arts community.
