Victoria Anderson

Researcher/Teacher 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. Previously I've taught Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London; and before coming to Cardiff University's School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, I spent several years working with deep learning research and technology out of the University of Bristol's Graduate School of Education. 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. I also write regularly for The Big Issue.
