Amy Boyle is currently completing a Doctor of Philosophy (Arts) at the University of Wollongong. Amy’s research explores the representation of women, and the circulation of heteropatriarchies and feminisms through western popular culture. Her dissertation will examine how the movement from the broadcast network to the subscription television environment has cultivated a feminist niche audience and a new demand for women-centric, more explicitly feminist content.
Amy has published in Signs: Journal of Women in Culture & Society, Feminist Media Studies and MAI: Feminism & Visual Culture.
