About Fellow's Work: 

J. Ann Tickner came to the Consortium as a professor in the School of International Relations at the University of Southern California. Her research focuses on feminist perspectives on international relations theory, with a particular focus on ways of reconceptualizing security. Dr. Tickner has served as a visiting professor and scholar at numerous universities around the world and authored several books including Gendering World Politics: Issues and Approaches in the Post-Cold War Era and Gender in International Relations: Feminist Perspectives on Achieving Global Security. She holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from Brandeis University, an M.A. in International Relations from Yale University, and a B.A. in History from the University of London. During her time with the Consortium, Dr. Tickner's work was supported by the Women in Public Policy Program at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University. While a Senior Fellow at the Consortium, Dr. Tickner drew from international relations feminist case studies to analyze and assess how certain methodological orientations are useful for understanding the gendering of international politics and the state and its effects on the lives of women. Her Consortium Working Paper, "What is Your Research Program? Some Feminist Answers to IR's Methodological Questions," was later published in International Studies Quarterly.
