Researching at the intersections of law, literature and legal theory Dr Hook’s research centres on authors and artists and creative freedom. Her PhD thesis looked at restrictions placed on transformative authors and artists due to the moral rights provisions in the Copyright Act. Her research looks at romanticism, postmodernism and contemporary modes of textual production and how these ideologies intersect with legal contexts such as defamation, copyright, government regulation, regulation of the press, and other impediments to the free exchange of ideas and expression. Dr Hook is a lecturer in Media Law and Government and Public Law at Western Sydney University. She has also taught across a diverse number of subjects including Equity and Trusts, Constitutional Law, Contract Law, Administrative Law, Law of Associations and Enterprise Law.
