Literary Studies

Biography

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from The University of Queensland (1992) before gaining first-class Honours in English also at The University of Queensland (1994). Under the Commonwealth Scholarship scheme, I undertook a PhD in English Language and Literature at University College London (1999). My doctoral thesis examined the contemporary UK book publishing industry and its role in gradually mainstreaming feminist ideas. Upon my return to Australia I worked in academic publishing before taking up an Australian Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship in the School of School of English, Media Studies and Art History at The University of Queensland (2001-03), and subsequently a Lectureship in School of English, Art History, Film and Media at The University of Sydney (2004). I took up a continuing Lectureship in the Communications and Media Studies program at Monash in 2005 and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2008. From mid-2009 I have also been Director of Monash University's Centre for the Book.
