Nadine Changfoot is Associate Professor of Political Studies and Trent University Teaching Fellow (2017-2020), and Senior Research Affiliate with Re•Vision: The Centre for Art and Social Justice, University of Guelph. Her research is collaborative, addressing and producing art at the intersection of politics, arts activism, and community-campus engagement that include methods and ethics of research creation for multimedia digital storytelling and complex cross-sectoral partnerships comprising the state, non-profit sector, aggrieved communities, and academy. She has worked with Re•Vision since 2012, beginning with “Mobilizing New Meanings of Disability and Difference” (CIHR funded). 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 at the edges of the academy for social change. With Bodies in Translation she is a lead on Research Stream 5, Mobilizing the Arts, and she will be leading a series of multimedia digital storytelling with older adults in partnership with the Trent Centre of Aging Studies. She is also an academic lead on the SSHRC funded partnership, Community First (CFICE): Impacts of Community-Campus Engagement. CFICE is working to establish and strengthen community-campus partnerships on a regional and national scale. Nadine loves bodymind practice, moving and playing music, in the water, with the wind, in diverse landscapes, with animals…children and people, too!
