In addition to publishing within my research areas, I maintain a keen interest in writing for a range of audiences and for various professional organisations. My publications cover a wide range of topics from popular culture to history. These writing projects span across various media outlets including The Conversation and PopMatters. I also have a track record of successful grant applications that range from AUD$500 to $50,000.

In 2017, inspired by my experience working in Western Australia’s Department of
Health, I authored an article on the theme of aging in contemporary superhero films, for the Conversation. The piece was subsequently picked up by the ABC. I was also interviewed by the ABC.

In 2016, I applied for, and received a publication grant of AUD$500 for a published book chapter.

In 2016, as part of a commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, I authored a piece on Shakespearean supernaturalism for the Conversation.

In 2016 , I published a chapter as part of a PopMatters ebook on merchandising and the TV series ‘Doctor Who‘.

In 2015 I authored an essay on metatextuality in the film Birdman for the Conversation.

In 2013, I researched and successfully applied for a grant of AUD$50,000 for a not-for-profit organisation.


'horror': Middle English: via Old French from Latin horror, from horrere ‘tremble, shudder’.
