Personal profile

Research Biography

I teach undergraduate and Honours level classes in English and Creative Writing and I research in the field of autobiography studies. I am the author of Dear World: Contemporary Uses of the Diary (University of Wisconsin Press, 2014) and Editor (with Kate Douglas) of Telling Tales: Autobiography of Childhood and Youth (Routledge, 2015). I am the essays Editor for the Australian scholarly journal, Life Writing. My primary research interest is in practices of documenting the everyday. In my work, I focus on marginal and ordinary forms of life writing, such as diaries, letters, and comics, as well as social media and digital, online modes and this is part of an ongoing attention to acts of contemporary self-representation that characterizes my research in general.
