Jenn Cole

Jenn Cole (Mixed Ancestry Algonquin, Kiji Sibi Watershed) is a scholar and performance artist. She is passionate about teaching performance and creative expression as research and scholarship practices. She writes about the activist elements of intimacy created by imperfect storytelling and feminist performance adaptations, while her performance practice explores storytelling, trans-generational autobiography, and the sharing of food together as an expression of vulnerability and relational exchange that is pivotal as we try to cultivate a sense of home.

Aging Activisms is a program of activist research, academic mentorship, and intergenerational community-building led by
Dr. May Chazan, Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Gender and Feminist Studies at Trent University.
