Denise is Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Social Justice at University of Notre Dame Australia and a Senior Research Associate at the University of Johannesburg. Her research focuses on the contested and evolving ways feminism, gender and gendered violence are understood in media and public debates. These interests are at the heart of her recent book, Familicide, Gender and the Media (2022) (Springer), which examines how complex forms of gendered violence are made sense of and represented.
