Present- MA Media Studies, Concordia University
2017- BA Psychology, University of British Columbia
Jessie is a researcher, writer and emergent media-maker beginning her MA in Media Studies at Concordia University. Her current thesis project explores self-determined narratives of intellectual disability and sexuality in contemporary media. Jessie’s work is always grounded in community and driven by practical implications of public engagement. Interdisciplinary by nature, her other areas of interest weave in and around queer, crip and feminist theories, questions of corporeality, accessibility, and sustainable textile practices. Utilizing access as a method of research-creation, she hopes to blend critical theory and ethnography into multi-sensory textiles pieces.
