My current research, with the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies at the University of Sydney, looks at the gendering and sexualising of natural landscapes in film, literature and art. The work enquires, from a posthuman, postfeminist, material ecocritical perspective, how the story-making process could be used to advocate for more-than-human nature? As part of this research, writing and filmmaking process, I will soon undertake a residency at the Library of Water, Iceland, following in […]
Now in Berlin organising the Symposium for Gender Equity with The WØMB. I will also be hosting a panel discussion on Feminism in the Age of the Anthropocene.

After a long hiatus while busily working on other independent projects, I’m back with updates! For the most part of 2018 so far, I have been dedicating a lot of my time to the organisation I founded together with Klaudia Domurat, called The WØMB. The WØMB is a non-profit association empowering female, non-binary and female-identifying creatives and entrepreneurs in the creative industries. We hold bi-annual symposiums with workshops, masterclasses, roundtables and panels led by industry […]

I was so happy to be back in Paris last week – I fell in love with the city all over again! I was there to present my book Little Houses, Big Forests (desire is no light thing) for the first time in France. I was invited by the Transgressive Cultures Conference, held at the University of Chicago, to read several extracts from the book – Just tumult everywhere endlessly, Leda in Glass and several vignettes from my novel.

I’m very happy to announce my writer’s residency in Iceland next summer. In August 2018 I’ll follow in the footsteps of some of my favourites – Anne Carson, Roni Horn, Rebecca Solnit – for a residency at the Vatnasafn – Library of Water in Iceland. I’ll be using the time there for concentrated research and writing for my new project on femininity and nature and its representations in several key texts and films. The focus […]
