Alissa Jordan

Media, Anthropology, and Teaching Specialist

Alissa is a multimedia socio-cultural anthropologist and received her PhD in December 2016 from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Florida. Her research interests include security, religion, Atlantic ontologies, and the inculcation of particular modes of perception. Her current work explores security/insecurity as enculturated, transpersonal perceptual fields that are subject to continuous permutation and creative intervention, and she engages these questions within diverse communities in Haiti and Ghana.
