Jane Jorgenson studies organizational communication with special interests in work-life and gender issues in the workplace. Her research focuses on the everyday communication processes through which individuals negotiate their work and professional identities, particularly in the context of family and caregiving commitments. She has written about identity negotiation processes in diverse contexts ranging from women engineers and artists to military spouses to dual-career academic couples. Her work also explores methodological questions related to alternative forms of inquiry such as joint storytelling and photovoice. Her research has been published in journals such as Management Communication Quarterly, Communication Theory, The Journal of Family Communication, Communication Yearbook, and The Journal of Applied Behavioral Science.
