    About Ana Jordan

    I joined the University of Lincoln in 2009 as a Lecturer in Politics. My PhD in Politics, entitled “Gender and the Ethics of Care: Theorising care through fathers’ rights discourses,” was awarded in the same year by the University of Bristol and was ESRC-funded. The primary original contributions of my doctoral research were to debates in contemporary political theory around the ethics of care and to the academic literature on masculinities. I have also successfully completed an MSc in Research Methods (University of Bristol), an MA in Political Philosophy (University of York) and a BA in Politics (minor in Philosophy) (University of Lancaster).

    Department Responsibilities

    My teaching is research-led, drawing on my academic expertise in political theory, gender and politics and new social movements. I currently teach in these areas on a wide range of modules at Lincoln including the following courses at undergraduate level: Identity and Citizenship; Applying Research; Independent Studies; Anti-politics; Body Politics; Human Rights; Researching Politics and International Relations; Researching Social Policy; Thinking International Relations; Thinking Politics and on the MA in Globalising Justice: Globalisation, Gender and Sexuality and International Human Rights. I am module coordinator for Identity and Citizenship and Law, Order and Politics. PhD Supervision: Thesis title: Female Political Participation in Libya. PhD awarded: May 2011 I welcome proposals to supervise PhDs in all areas related to my research (see above).
