Jessica Megarry

 

Dr Jessica Megarry is a Lecturer in Political Science (MECAF) at the University of Melbourne. She has over 5 years teaching experience at the tertiary level, across various institutions and subjects such as feminist and gender studies, political and sociological theory, digital politics, public policy lobbying and strategic political communication, and qualitative methods.

Jessica’s research explores the politics and ethics of digital technology from a feminist perspective. She is particularly interested in analysing how transformations in time, space and surveillance are shaping feminist organising in the era of social media. Her work has featured in Feminist Media Studies and Women's Studies International Forum, and she is currently preparing a monograph based upon her PhD research for the book series Social and Cultural Studies to Robotics and AI (Palgrave Macmillan). Jessica is also engaged in two collaborative research projects: one investigating tensions of inclusion/exclusion in LGBTIQA+ organising, and the other looking at contemporary experiences of feminist consciousness-raising groups.
