About

Welcome to my blog. I’m not sure why you are here, or why you might be interested in my blog, but I welcome you none-the-less. My name is Natalie and I started this blog a couple of years ago as I was moving through the final stages of completing my doctorate in the creative arts at the University of Technology Sydney. It will now take on a slightly different focus as I aim to discuss contemporary popular media from both a fan and academic perspective.

My research is in media studies, more specifically in transmedia, which is the spreading of a story or experience across multiple media platforms (Film, TV, web etc.). My main interest is in how transmedia, as a mode and system of storytelling provide new spaces for marginalised audiences to share their stories and find positive representation. My doctorate includes a theory-based dissertation, and a creative component comprising of a feature film screenplay, a storyworld document, an alternate reality game and an interactive web experience.
