Biografi

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

My research focuses on the interface between literary and popular fiction and environmental politics. More specifically, I examine the rhetorical strategies deployed by authors to frame ecological decline and disaster and ask questions about the affective engagements they engender.


I received my BA in English and History from the University of Wollongong, Australia. My thesis analysed three recurring figures in the work of Kathy Acker; the pirate, terrorist, and father. I have also completed a Magister degree at Gothenburg University, Sweden producing a thesis on the negotiations of feminist theory and practice in Angela Carter's work. Following this I was admitted to the doctoral program at Uppsala University in 2012.
