Victoria Anderson

Visiting Researcher in Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, Cardiff University

I have current research interests in digital cultures, psychoanalysis, narrative (especially, but not only, folklore and myth) and the intersections between all of these things; I am also interested in race, class, gender and other questions of equality, and how we can address these both within, and without, the academic context. I am a trustee for the prisoner rehabilitation charity Stretch (, which develops digital arts, storytelling and life/learning skills for those within the criminal justice system. Among other things, I am currently working on a book about some of my experiences working with men in prison.
