Personal profile


Aneta is a media researcher and lecturer in Communications and Media Studies, in the School of Media, Film and Journalism (MFJ) at Monash University, Melbourne. She is dedicated to collaborative, interdisciplinary academic work that engages communities and industry. She has researched in the areas of media and everyday life, social inclusion, consumption, and environmental sustainability, working together with government, commercial and not-for-profit partners. At Monash, she has taught media units in both undergraduate and postgraduate programs, with the focus on the influence of media on social life and social change. Aneta has supervised students across disciplines of media and communication, the sociology of consumption and design.

Before joining Monash University in 2016, she had been a researcher at the Swinburne Institute for Social Research, Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, where she worked on a longitudinal collaborative study of youth media social enterprise, and later on was chief investigator (with Kath Hulse) on an interdisciplinary research project funded by the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living, examining the role of media and communications in helping promote sustainable home renovations (2014-2017). She was also involved in a CRC LCL project called ‘A “market” for analysing residential housing and business policy interventions’ led by CSIRO (2015-2018).

Aneta is co-author of two book manuscripts: Using Media for Social Innovation (Intellect, 2018, with Ellie Rennie), and Grand Designs: Consumption and Sustainability in Property TV (Palgrave, 2018, with Esther Milne and Jenny Kennedy), and co-editor of the cultural history of skiing (Palgrave, 2018, with Philipp Strobbl).
