I am an Associate Professor at the University of Melbourne in English literary education, cultural studies, and arts methods. From 2022-2025 I hold an Australian Research Council DECRA Fellowship: my project is called Speculative Futures.
Additionally, I co-direct the Literary Education Lab. Our diverse projects intersect around the significance of literary texts in English secondary education, the place of literature in qualitative research methodologies, and the relationship between literary education and racial and social justice. We were recently awarded an ARC Linkage Grant for our project Reading Climate which focuses on Indigenous climate fiction and climate justice education in secondary English classrooms.
My other past/current collaborations include:
Oblique Curiosities: an electronic glitch folk duo.
WalkingLab: a SSHRC-funded international network of artists and researchers interested in walking as a critical research methodology and research-creation.
Hamilton Perambulatory Unit: artists and writers who orchestrate participatory events to explore walking in conjunction with artistic practices.
I can be reached through social media and at my University of Melbourne email.
