This is the central repository of Jen stuff.
For many years, I've been working in social media, both for myself, and for individuals and institutions. My Press page has links to articles about some of the work I've done. I'm probably best known for launching Tupelo, a restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts; for founding and expanding the Equal Rights Amendment page on Facebook; and for creating #UseThe19th, a hashtag intended to get out the female vote in the 2012 election.
Aside from my social media work, I spend a lot of time thinking about citizenship and gender, and how the two intersect in the United States. Long term, I am working on a book about my family's friendship with Andrew Jackson, and how that affected our notions of manhood. In the (slightly) shorter term, I have been pulling together -- along with co-writer Sarah-Jane Stratford -- a history of the Equal Rights Amendment in graphic novel form.
Other than that, I spend a lot of time walking around and getting coffee at various coffee-brewing establishments. I am currently a proud Cantabrigian, with all that implies. I grew up in Brookline, where I learned to be sardonic, and then lived in New York City for a decade, where I learned to be...um...assertive.
If you want to know what's going through my mind on a daily basis, you can follow me on Twitter. If you want a listing of my various employments over the years, you can check me out on LinkedIn. If you want to see what books I'm reading (when I remember to list them), by all means hook up with me on GoodReads.
Or we can just hang out here. Whatever.
