PhD supervision

I am interested in working with students in any area of gender studies, media studies, cultural studies or visual culture, but have particular research interests in:

Embodiment and performance
Femininities, including queer and trans femininities
Gender and popular culture
Digital media and online cultures
Celebrity cultures

Research Interests

I am a feminist cultural theorist with strong research interests in gender, feminist theory, sexuality, critical race theory, queer theory and embodiment. My research engages with embodied and social aspects of new media and digital cultures, celebrity culture, media and violence, fan studies, sexuality studies and mad studies.

My current research project is Screening Rape: on the politics of popular culture, spectatorship and violence. See my article on Game of Thrones in Australian Feminist Studies

Forthcoming 2017: special section of Feminist Theory on 'The Politics of Popular Culture' co-edited with Geraldine Harris (LICA). 

I am currently involved in co-organising the third annual Hear Me Roar, Lancaster's Feminist Festival.

Currently I am on the editorial board of Cogent Social Sciences and am a member of ECREA.
