Dr. Jackson's research interests bring feminist and poststructural theories of power, knowledge, language, and subjectivity to bear on a range of overlapping topics: deconstructions of narrative and voice, cultural studies of schooling (with an emphasis on the rural), and qualitative method in the postmodern. She has publications in The International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education, Qualitative Inquiry, The International Review of Qualitative Research, and the British journal Qualitative Research. Her co-edited book Voice in Qualitative Inquiry (with colleague Lisa Mazzei) was published in September 2008 by Routledge Press. She and Lisa Mazzei are currently working on another book, Thinking with Theory in Qualitative Research: Using Epistemological Frameworks in the Production of Meaning, to be published by Routledge Press in 2011.
In spring 2010, Dr. Jackson received The Board of Governor's/ASU's Excellence in Teaching Award for the Reich College of Education. She teaches RES 5000, RES 5040, and RES 5060. She currently serves on Faculty Senate and the Faculty Grievance Hearing Committee. As well, she teaches hatha yoga to faculty and staff through ASU's Health Promotion.
