Research Interests

My research focuses on television and domestic media as interdisciplinary objects of inquiry, and my work has drawn upon theoretical traditions and frameworks within memory studies, childhood studies and disability studies.

  • The disabled child in film and television
  • Learning disabilities and screen media
  • Television, autobiography and autoethnography
  • Television and discourses of care
