Nicole “NTN” Jordan, Associate Professor of History at the University of Illinois at Chicago, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in history education.

Dr. Jordan became involved in her profession as a historian due to her large and long-time love for history. During her childhood, her mother was so keen on historical facts and related it to famous people, so she talked about it constantly, only growing her own intrigue for the subject. Following her passion, she later earned a Bachelor of Arts from Wellesley College in 1972, as well as a Bachelor of Arts, with honors, and a Master of Arts from Oxford University in 1975. Dr. Jordan commenced her professional career as a lecturer at Trinity College and Oxford University in 1980, shortly thereafter attaining a Doctor of Philosophy in international history from the London School of Economics in 1984. That same year, she joined the faculty at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she has since risen from lecturer and assistant professor to associate professor of European history. Since 2010, she has also been a research affiliate at the Center for European Studies at Harvard University.

A prolific writer alongside her research and teaching, Dr. Jordan is set to publish “Representations of the Poison Gas War on the Eastern Front, 1915-1917,” Genocide in the Indigenous, Early Modern and Imperial Worlds, vol. ii of the Cambridge World History of Genocide. She is also the author of the historical monograph “The Popular Front And Central Europe: The Dilemmas Of French Impotence 1919-1940,” earning the George Louis Beer Prize Of The American History Association, Selection Of The American Council Of Learned Societies History E-Book Project in 1992. A member of the American Historical Association, Dr. Jordan attributes her success to being an omnivorous reader and to her insatiable curiosity. Secondly, she considers herself fortunate to have numerous contacts in the European archives. In five years’ time, she hopes to write another major book all while continuing her varying areas of research. To attest to her legacy, Dr. Jordan is also listed in the 58th and 59th editions of Who’s Who in America.
