Dr Debra Ferreday

Senior Lecturer

Current Teaching

Since 2010 I have been MA Convenor for Media and Cultural Studies, including teaching on the following courses:

SOCL 921: Critical Debates in Media and Cultural Studies (convenor)

SOCL 923: Critical Methods in Media and Cultural Studies (convenor and lecturer/tutor)

GWS 403: Feminist Cultural Theory

At undergraduate level, I convene and teach the core course for the BA programme in Media and Cultural Studies, MCS.200: Critical Cultural Theory.I also contribute teaching to GWS.101: Introduction to Gender and Women's Studies.

My research and teaching are closely interconnected: until 2012 I convened a module on Gender Performativity. My conversations with students on this course directly informed the themes and ideas included in my forthcoming monograph on fashion, femininity and feminism. My teaching practice is informed by my strong research interest in innovative approaches to pedagogy drawn from Networked Learning.
