A little about me: I'm a PhD student in Media and Communications at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. My research interests lie in effective animal rights activism, exploring the intersections in animal rights activism with adjacent movements, and reconceptualising the idea of 'veganism' as a radical activist stance. I've worked in a range of media and communications-based roles, specialising in copywriting, social media management, media engagement and PR, and podcast hosting.
Are you new to animal studies research? Do you grapple with current theoretical debates – such as intersectionality and decolonial approaches? Do you wonder how and where to publish? If you would like to understand the basics of the publication process, from pitching an article idea to responding to peer review and get advice on what’s possible when working with non-traditional outputs – such as visual art and creative writing – join us at the master class: Tools for Animal Studies Research.
This interactive online event, presented by the Australasian Animal Studies Association (AASA), is aimed at higher degree and early career researchers interested in animal studies. You will have an opportunity to hear from scholars doing innovative work in the field and ask questions.
