Personal Statement

Cat received her PhD from Northumbria University in November 2017 and was appointed as one the inaugural Derby Fellows at the University of Liverpool in October 2018. Her doctoral research explored the representation of female participation in the Second World War in four contemporary television dramas. She is interested generally in postfeminism as a cultural phenomenon, particularly the ways in which it inflects and informs our understanding of people, places and the past. Her broader research interests centre on the representation of gendered histories, postfeminism in contemporary culture, television and historical place making, the role of the media in facilitating our engagement with and understanding of the past and the relationship between television and cultural memory.
