Dr. Jessica Birch
Faculty Director

Jessica Birch is an instructor in Ethnic Studies and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
Prior to coming to BGSU she taught at Case Western Reserve University, Ivy Tech Community College, Indiana University South Bend, and Purdue University.
Her teaching and research focus on how cultural narratives justify and perpetuate social inequality, using the theoretical lenses of feminist theory, critical race theory, critical pedagogy, and cultural studies. She is particularly interested in the intersections among these areas, and her current research project examines the vampire in literature within the paradigm of dominant neoliberal discourse.
