Jana Morgan

Jana MorganJana Morgan is Associate Professor of Political Science and Research Fellow in the Center for the Study of Social Justice at the University of Tennessee. Her research considers issues of inequality, exclusion, and representation in Latin America. She is particularly interested in exploring how gaps in the representation of economically and socially marginalized groups undermine democratic institutions and outcomes. She is the recipient of the Van Cott Outstanding Book award given by the Latin American Studies Association for her book Bankrupt Representation and Party System Collapse (Penn State, 2011), which shows how party systems' inability to provide adequate linkages between society and the state precipitate their collapse. Her work has also been published in numerous journals including American Political Science Review, Journal of Politics, Politics & Gender, Comparative Political Studies, Latin American Research Review, and Latin American Politics and Society.
