Jordan is a Ph.D. student in French & Francophone Studies. After finishing his undergraduate degree at URI, Jordan spent a year teaching English in Blois, France through the TAPIF program. He then enrolled at UNC Chapel Hill, where he realized his passion for 19th-century French Literature. Jordan’s research focuses on the representation of the body as depicted in literature from the second half of the nineteenth century, with special attention to the notions of impermanence and malleability of the body and its relationship to the rise of modern Paris.

Jordan has presented multiple times at the Carolina Conference on Romance Studies, and has also participated in the Société des dix-neuviémistes annual conference in April of 2016.
