Dr Melinda Harvey

PhD, BA (Hons I) (USyd)

I joined Monash in 2011, having held lectureships at the University of Sydney, ANU, RMIT University and the European College of Liberal Arts, Berlin (now Bard College, Berlin).

I am Director of the Centre for the Book. I am also the Monash Liaison for the Melbourne Writers Festival and the Emerging Writers’ Festival.

In September 2016 I will be co-convening the ‘Reading Coetzee’s Women’ conference at the Monash University Prato Centre in Italy.

I write as a book critic, regularly reviewing new books for numerous Australian newspapers and magazines. You can read some of my reviews here. I am the convenor of the symposium Critical Matters: Book Reviewing Now on Thursday 9 April 2015, which will be held at the Wheeler Centre.
