Biographical details

Professor Catherine Driscoll joined the University in 2003 after working at the Universities of Melbourne and Adelaide.

Research interests

Catherine's research is organised around three streams. The first is youth studies, with a focus on ideas about adolescence, the impact of media and popular culture on youth, and gendered formations of youth (she is an internationally recognised leader in the field of girls studies). The second stream is rural cultural studies, with an emphasis on the history and experience of Australian rurality, on rural youth, on retirement migration and aging populations, and on the cultural sustainability of country towns. The final stream is broadly cultural theory, with an emphasis on theories of modernity and of gender, drawing particularly on theories of modernity and on post-structuralism. Her major current research goals include finalising the outcomes for an ARC-funded study of media classification systems, with Liam Grealy and a team of research partners (http://mediaclassification.org/), and a new research group exploring the possibilities for an affirmative feminist boys studies. Other in-process research includes a book on feminist cultural studies, and an expansion of earlier work on experiences of age and aging in Australian country towns into a project on rural retirement.
