Background information and interests

Amanda is a lecturer in Mass Communication and an ESL teacher. She received her PhD from Murdoch University in 2000 — her thesis concentrates on magazine culture, in particular seminal style journal THE FACE. Her areas of interest are magazines, semiotics, music, adult education and popular memory. The combination of lecturing Mass Communication and being an ELICOS pedagogue presents a constant challenge and keeps her teaching and research skills 'fresh'. She is a fashion victim and ridiculously addicted to magazines — in particular sad weekly 'gossip rags'. She is married, to the very lovely, Tony, and the mother of two beautiful girls, Lola and Ruby.
