Postdoctoral research fellow, RMIT University

Dr Kate Farhall is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Centre for People, Organisation and Work and the School of Management at RMIT. Kate’s research interests lie in feminist theory – particularly regarding sexuality, sexual violence, gender norms and the feminist movement itself – as well as structural forms of gender inequality in contemporary society more broadly. Her previous research has primarily focussed on constructions of sexuality and relationships in the media and other cultural artefacts; however, she has also worked collaboratively on projects analysing the changing role of journalism in the public sphere. Kate’s postdoctoral work focusses on workplace engagement with the issue of domestic and family violence, particularly in regional areas of Victoria, Australia.
