stephany peterson headshotStephany is a doctoral student of the University of New Brunswick, with a concentration in interdisciplinary studies – focusing on the spaces between the traditional disciplines. This has flourished in all facets of her life, as an intersection of her academic, professional, and philanthropic passions. As an academic, Stephany has served in a variety of capacities for executive representation: Graduate Student Association executive and council rep, as Arts Representative, and President of the Sociology Graduate Society. She has presented and attended academic and industry conferences across the country, and her work has been published on topics of criticality and social construct temporalities.  In January 2018, she was appointed as student ambassador of the Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse. Her most recent research is being conducted as Visiting Research Scholar at the University of Colombo in Sri Lanka: developing intergenerational cultural programs in regions affected by the recent state of emergency and civil unrest. Her current and upcoming work sees her expand this work into interdisciplinarity, focusing interests on ageism, intergenerational programs, and instruments of policy across New Brunswick. Specifically, her research will focus on the lived experience of senior financial exploitation in partnership with the Financial and Consumer Services of New Brunswick.
