Personal profile

Biography

My research explores changing practices of gender through media, spanning digital self-representational practices, popular culture and self-branding. I am particularly interested in mediated cultures of femininity, feminism and women's role in contemporary understandings of life, work, and successful selfhood. My work has appeared in journals such as Feminist Media Studies, Social Media + Society, the European Journal of Cultural Studies and the Journal of Gender Studies.
