University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban

Dissertation: Globalised Girlhood: The teachings of femininity in Cosmopolitan and True Love. My comparative case study considered whether women’s magazines (in the then-absence of teen titles) serve as developmental markers and informal educational devices in the passage from girlhood to adulthood. Through text analysis and focus-group research, I compared the magazines’ content, tone, brand extensions and reception among teenage girls in Durban. A summary was published in Globalised Girlhood (issue 51, 2005), part of the international Glocal Youth media-education programme. As a graduate student, I wrote for Democracy Watch (at the Democracy for All Programme, Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, UKZN).
