Professor Jane Gingrich
Department: Politics and International Relations
College appointment: Emeritus Fellow
I hold a BA from Queen’s University, in Kingston Ontario and a MA and PhD from the University of California Berkeley. Before joining Magdalen College, I taught at the University of Minnesota.
I teach courses in comparative politics, political sociology, European politics, and social policy.
My main research interests involve comparative political economy and comparative social policy. In particular, I am interested in contemporary restructuring of the welfare state, and the politics of institutional change more broadly. I am currently working on a project examining how the introduction of market-oriented reforms in state services has altered citizen and group attitudes towards government.
