Mass Communication

University of Sydney

Dr Zoe Alderton has a PhD in Studies in Religion from the University of Sydney, Australia, and currently works for the same institution as a Lecturer in Economics and Writing Studies. She is author of The Spirit of Colin McCahon (2015) and The Aesthetics of Self-Harm (forthcoming, 2018). Both of these monographs involve a substantial consideration of the way in which mass media informs our relationships with spheres as diverse as art appreciation, public health, and construction of self-identity. Her particular interest is in social media as a communication tool and the use of social media for mental health programs and animal rights advocacy.
