Jamie J. Hagen new Lecturer in Global Politics

The Department of Politics is delighted to welcome Dr Jamie J. Hagen as a new Lecturer in Global Politics.

Jamie J. Hagen is currently a Lecturer in International Relations at Queen’s University Belfast, where she is the founding co-director of the Center for Gender in Politics. Her work sits at the intersection of gender, security studies, and queer theory.

Hagen brings a feminist, anti-racist approach to her work, bridging gaps between academics, policy, and activist spaces. She was the lead researcher on a British Academy Innovation Fellowship (2022-2023) focusing on improving engagement with lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer women in Women, Peace, and Security Programming.

Her research in this field is published in the Journal of Gender Studies, International Affairs, Critical Studies in Security, the International Feminist Journal of Politics, and the European Journal of Gender and Politics as well as in the Washington Post, London School of Economics’ Women Peace and Security Blog, the International Peace Institute’s Global Observatory, and other outlets.

Hagen is co-editor of the edited volume Queer Conflict Research: New Approaches to Study of Political Violence (BUP) and co-developed the Queering Women, Peace and Security: A Practice-Based toolkit.
