Research interests / activities:

I am at the beginning stage of my Masters by Research (possibly Phd) at Swinburne University. My Supervisors’ are Tracy Young and Karen Malone. I will be advocating for animals in my thesis. At this stage my focus title and questions are ‘Considering the indoctrination of Australian children in the dominant discourse of suffering of the other-ed.’
‘What is this indoctrination?’ ‘Where does it come from?’ ‘How does it present itself?’ ‘Why is it not questioned?’ ‘What happens to those who question it?’ ‘Do children and other others question it, and if so, how is this displayed?’ ‘What are the consequences for others who question it?’ ‘Who benefits most from this indoctrination?’
