Background information and interests

Dr Angela Thomas-Jones is a part-time academic at Murdoch University, Western Australia and editor of the Popular Culture Collective's community and hub projects.

Her research pieces focus on different aspects of popular culture such as fashion, body politics, the creative industries and youth. Her next (large) writing endeavour will be commencing a Masters of Arts (Creative Writing) later this year.

Angela began her undergraduate studies simultaneously with employment as a research officer in the school of psychology, and then in the Division of Arts, at Murdoch University. In 2003 she swapped her collared shirt for twisted silk and spent two years working in a studio-based boutique in down town Fremantle.

As a lover of clothing and textiles Angela's other interests are clothing and jewellery design some of which she has sold in local Perth boutiques.
