Jane Jorgenson joined the Communication faculty in 1996. Her primary research interests center on workplace identities and meanings with a focus on gender, and on the communicative intersections of work and family life. She is currently conducting a study of dual-career academic couples on the job market and how they negotiate the "two-body problem." In addition to her work-family scholarship, a portion of her current research explores the role of framing in the production of organizational realities.
