Maggie Jackson is a lecturer in the Department of Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies at the Ohio State University. She holds Bachelor of Arts degrees in Art History and English Literature from Kalamazoo College, and a Masters degree in Sociology from Goldsmiths, University of London, where her concentration was in Gender, Media & Culture, and a Doctor of Philosophy in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies from The Ohio State University. Her recent work examines the affective resonances of queer identities in online fandom and presents a critical view of the 'rehabilitory' resituation of fans as 'readers' in recent scholarship.

She is the recipient of a 2015 Goldsmiths International Postgraduate Scholarship and the Distinguished University Fellowship at The Ohio State University.
