Research interests / activities

Current undertaking PhD study with a focus on the subversion of traditional folktales and Disney fairy tales using feminist ecocritical theory. The research and creative output explore the rendering of animals and the environment – in particular wolves and the woods – and will challenge the traditional and Disney fairy tale representations. In re-evaluating relations between humanity and animals the creative picture books I create will offer alternatives to the questions, who is the beast? who is the brute?
