After spamming everyone I know on Facebook with all the amazing gender and sexuality related things I discover each day, I thought I should make a blog to keep it all in one neat and tidy place instead. This is a blog dedicated to all things gender bending, blending, queering, conforming, questioning, subverting, fixing, unfixing.
I am currently a lecturer in gender studies at the University of Melbourne. I gained my PhD at the Australian National University, in the School of Sociology. I have lectured and tutored in sociology and gender, sexuality and culture, and my background is philosophy, psychology and political science. At ANU I was the Gender Institute Inaugural PhD Scholar.
You can find more of my work: on The Conversation, in Us Folk Magazine, on this video talking about femme, and in this Queer Sexualities e-book. Check out my article on Snog Marry Avoid for Australian Feminist Studies, my co-authored piece on Deleuze here and my piece on Hélène Cixous and postfeminism here. I have also done social media work for Feminartsy, a feminist literature and arts journal based in Canberra. You can find them on Facebook here.
I am passionate about gender studies and often give introductory talks at local schools. I have also presented at the National Young Writer’s Festival, and am often part of panels and forums discussing issues such as feminism, femininity, queer identity, consent and girlhood studies. If you would like to have me speak at your school or event, please let me know via the contact page.
