Personal profile


My research interests revolve around gender, representation, narration and democracy from an intersectional feminist perspective.  My key focus has been autobiographical narration, both in terms of representation and reception. What and whose story is given legitimacy? How?

In my most recent research projects I have analyzed personal narratives of sexual violence. How are witness narratives used to mobilize for social change in digital media campaigns against sexual violence? How are digital witness narratives produced, circulated and received?
