A graduate student on the UNB Fredericton campus is going to be a little bit busier this fall, as she looks to take on some new responsibilities with the Department of Culture and Media Studies.

Lisa Jodoin, a PhD candidate in creative writing with the Department of English, will be joining the team at CAMS as their filmmaker in residence while she continues her creative and academic work which focuses on Indigenous identity and embodiment, urban Indigenous experience and decolonization.

Of Innu ancestry, Lisa grew up in Toronto, where her interest for writing and filmmaking began. She received a Bachelor of Arts from Algoma University in 2008, moving onto a Master of Arts with Lakehead University in 2010, eventually making her way to our graduate community her at UNB.

As part of her new role with the Department of Culture and Media Studies, Lisa will be holding weekly office hours for interested individuals, organizing a public film series and workshops as well as guest visits in the Department, amoung other things.
