Biography

Maria is a Lecturer in Politics and Policy in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.

Her research interests include media and politics, political communication, the role of the media in transitional justice and the politics of human rights in the media.

Her doctoral thesis was on the role of the mainstream media in post-conflict societies and how victims and advocates use it as a democratic space to negotiate, challenge and resist discourses about a just future.

More recently, her work explores how marginalised communities use digital media to contest dominant narratives and make justice claims. Her methodological interests are in the ethics and practice of virtual ethnography.

She has previously worked as a journalist for News Corp and Fairfax newspapers.
