Jana Morgan's research considers issues of inequality, exclusion, and representation. She explores how economic, social, and political inequalities affect marginalized groups' influence and undermine democratic institutions and outcomes. Jana studies how structures of economic inequality and poverty shape political participation, representation, and policymaking. She analyzes the causes and consequences of gendered economic and political inequalities cross-nationally and examines the links between campaign finance, political rhetoric, and the persistence of inequality in the US.
