I co-organised the 2020 IASPR Digital Forum Conference (10-17th July 2020) – scheduling the talks (with many different time zones), responding to the group’s emails, monitoring submissions and publicising the event.
I co-chaired the ‘Global Romance & Diversity’ special event discussion in the 2020 IASPR Digital Forum Conference (11th July).
I presented my research on ‘Female Sacrifice in Chick Lit Romance’ and participated in a Live Q&A session (July 16th) for the 2020 IASPR Digital Forum Conference.
I co-chair the Postgrad-led Romance Reading Group, where I coordinate and run monthly discussion sessions based on the topic of romance.
In June 2021, I will be participating in a lightening talk panel for the IASPR’s 2021 conference on ‘Chick Lit in the Twenty-First Century: Diversity, Inclusion and Innovation’ alongside Amy Burge (University of Birmingham), Heike Mißler (Universität des Saarlandes) and Sandra Folie (University of Vienna). My talk will compare the similarities between Ayisha Malik’s Sofia Khan is Not Obliged (2015) and Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones’ Diary (1996).
