The focus of Jordan's work is to understand the formation of relationships between people, identity, and place, and listen to how these relationships are expressed in verbal, spiritual/religious, digital, written, and embodied ways. She is interested in community literacies, place-based literacies, and digital storytelling.

From 2017 to 2018, Jordan was on a Fulbright research grant in India studying communities' (and particularly women's) sociocultural, religious/spiritual, and labor relations with water. She conducted 15 digital storytelling workshops in five different states. The workshops focused on place-based narrative writing, image collection and composition, video-editing and memory mapping.
