Dr. Jordan specializes in British literature of the nineteenth century. She has published articles and presented at national conferences on gender, class, and film, and is currently researching nineteenth-century children’s literature, sexuality, and women’s writing during the Romantic period. At UIU, she mostly teaches Introduction to Literature, English Composition I, and English Composition II.

The study of literature makes us more humane individuals, committed to social justice and progress.
