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.
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 on the judging panel of the Miles Franklin Literary Award. I am also series editor of the forthcoming Contemporary Australian Writers series published by Monash University Press.
