Professor Stevi Jackson

Profile

Biography

After studying at the Universities of Kent and York (1969-1975) I held a number of posts in UK institutions, Including the Universities of Glamorgan and Strathclyde, before coming to York In January 1998 as Professor of Women’s Studies. I was Director of the Centre for Women’s Studies until March 2016 when I began ‘phased retirement’ and now work part time.  I continue to be active in research and supervising PhD students.

Research

Overview

My main research interests are in feminist theory, interactionist sociology, sexuality, and intimate relationships. In recent years I have increasingly been focusing on gender and sexuality in East Asia and, in particular, working with colleagues in Hong Kong on the impact of political activism on personal lives and relationships.

Available PhD research projects
