Dr. Sarah Galletly is the Margaret and Colin Roderick Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Comparative Literature. She is collaborating with Dr. Victoria Kuttainen (JCU) and Dr. Susann Liebich (Heidelberg University) on a 3-year funded investigation of travel, the Pacific and interwar periodicals titled The Transported Imagination: Magazines, the Pacific, and the Interwar Imagination . As part of this project, she is undertaking a comparative analysis of the representation of women as travellers in Canadian and Australian mass-market magazines of the inter-war period, with a particular focus on questions of mobility and modernity.

Sarah is a former Research Associate of the University of Strathclyde, where she successfully defended her PhD in English Studies in November 2012. Her thesis was titled 'Work, Class and Gender in Canadian Fiction, 1890s-1920s,' and focused on representations of women’s work in turn-of-the-twentieth-century Canadian fiction.  

Her current research focuses on L.M. Montgomery's short fiction and Montgomery's place in middlebrow magazine cultures of the early twentieth century. She is also increasingly interested in the use of digital tools to help visualise and edit scholarly research. She has already created a digital showcase using Neatline mapping software and has more recently presented early prototype maps for the Transported Imagination project at DH2015.
