About

Emma has a BA (Hons) in English Literature from Flinders University (2011), and a PhD in English Literature, also from Flinders University (2016).

Her book Girls, Autobiography, Media: Gender and Self-Mediation in Digital Economies (2018, Palgrave Macmillan) investigates autobiographical strategies employed by girls and young women in contemporary digital media, and it considers how such self-representations of youthful femininity are received and critiqued.
