Biographical details

Dr. Marita Bullock arrived at the University of Sydney in 2013. Prior to this, she taught subjects in Australian literature, visual culture, film, media, critical theory and cultural studies at Macquarie University and The University of Western Sydney.

To date, her research has examined the relationship between cultural memory, objects/collections, visual culture and the poetics of ethnography. She is the author of Memory Fragments: Visualising Difference in Australian Culture and she is co-author (with Associate Professor Nicole Moore) of a bibliography containing information about literary titles banned in Australia across the twentieth century: Banned in Australia: A Subset. 1901-1975.

Dr. Bullock is currently working on a project that focuses on Australian writing, psychogeographies and the cultural poetics of waste.
