Victoria Anderson

Researcher/Teacher in Cultural Studies, Cardiff University

Victoria is currently developing a project that explores the ways that communication technologies and media impact on culture-as-folklore, both as a repository of human reflections and as an evolving set of practices. Her work navigates areas that touch on race, class and gender in the context of self-articulation, and particularly the analysis and aetiology of both dominant and marginalised cultural narratives.

Currently teaching in Cardiff University's School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, she has previously taught History of Art, Visual Cultures, Cultural Studies and English Literature at the Universities of Leeds, Goldsmiths and Kingston, and co-edited a volume with Griselda Pollock entitled 'Bluebeard's Legacy: Death and Secrets from Bartok to Hitchcock': London, IB TAURIS 2009.

For many years she was a frustrated novelist, and as a consequence has given up novels altogether and now only reads menus, instruction manuals and anything by or about Freud. She also reads emails, so do feel free to get in touch.
