Research information:

In the Spring of 2015 I successfully defended and submitted my PhD thesis. My research analyses representations of Canadian, American and Australian military personnel, police and cadets involved in military 'sex scandals'. I explore the longstanding culture of misogyny, racism, homophobia and ableism in the Canadian, U.S. and Australian Armed Forces, with a focus on the ways 'militarized masculinity' is guided by these violent structures and fundamental to the military's creation of soldiers. My dissertation explores the ways blame is individualised in cases of sexual and racist violence involving military personel, while military culture and militarized masculinity are commonly celebrated without regard for how they are fundamentally violent.
