Deputy Co-ordinator, Journalism Program, Swinburne University of Technology

Sue Green has more than 40 years journalism experience, including holding senior writing and editing positions in Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. She has a particular interest in the transition from industry to the Academy.

She has extensive experience writing about the arts, craft and design, architecture, interiors, property and books. As well as a postgraduate journalism qualification and a PhD in writing from Swinburne University she has a degree in textile design. Her PhD project, Disruptive Knitting: How knitters are changing the world, combined her writing and textile expertise. It focuses on politics, gender and knitting in Australia, in particular the undervaluing of women's work and the gender stereotypes associated with craft.

Sue left Swinburne University on January 31, 2020.
