Dr. Jenna Marshall

Jenna Marshall is a Senior Researcher for Development Policy and Postcolonial Studies. She studied in Toronto (BA Hons., York University) and London (PhD. Political Science, Queen Mary University of London). She is currently a 2019-2020 Sassoon Visiting Fellow in South Asian and Black History at the University of Oxford.

Her research interests take a critical approach to International Relations with a particular interest to empire and the (re)production of colonial global order in contemporary discourses on global governance. More broadly, she is interested in (global) historical sociological inquiry, the politics of the postcolonial and development world, the political economy of development, and post/decolonial critiques of Eurocentric discourse and methodology.

She has taught undergraduate modules in International Relations, Politics and Geography at Oxford Brookes University and QMUL and has received international grants including the British Federation of Women Graduates' FFWG Foundation Grant and the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Dr. Silvia W. de Groot memorial award. Outside of the academia, she has worked as an Assistant Curator for the Windrush Foundation's Making Freedom exhibition held at Marcus Garvey Library and the Royal Geographical Society in London.
