The International Studies Association (ISA) has awarded its James Rosneau Post-doctoral Fellowship to Global Governance and Human Security PhD candidate Jamie J. Hagen to further her research in the field of gender and security. The fellowship begins next year and supports the research of newly minted scholars in the social sciences.
Prior to joining the McCormack Graduate School to pursue her doctoral studies, Hagen completed an MA in political science at Brooklyn College. Working as a consultant for the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders, she conducted research for the 2012 Women, Peace and Security Policy Briefs. She also spent time working at several non-government organizations.
Hagen has published scholarly and freelance articles on gender, feminist security studies, and LGBTQ politics. She also contributed a chapter on LGBTQ sexuality and social media for the book, Gender, Sex and Politics: In the Streets and Between the Sheets in the 21st Century.
She is a member of the executive committee of the Feminist Theory and Gender Studies interest group of the International Studies Association. At the ISA-NE conference in November, she presented her research on "What is Gender and Who are Women? Queer Questions for the Women, Peace and Security Architecture,” related to her dissertation work on gender in post-conflict and transnational LGBTQ advocacy networks.
News of Hagen’s award was shared on the front page of the January ISA newsletter. Upon completion of her dissertation, she will work ¾ time on her own research while devoting the remainder to ISA projects. The fellowship carries a $50,000 annual stipend.
Graduate Program Director Stacey VanDeveer praises Hagen’s accomplishment. “This esteemed award recognizes Jamie’s outstanding scholarship in feminist security studies. Her work focuses on an important global policy challenge and seeks creative solutions that matter to the LGBTQ community.”
