Dr Victoria Tedeschi recently completed a PhD studying English and Theatre Studies in the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Melbourne in Australia. Her dissertation employs an ecocritical methodology to identify how Victorian-era editions of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale literature represented the ecosphere to a newfound child audience during a period of environmental upheaval. She is primarily interested in ecocritical research, ecofeminist discourse and representations of the environment in popular culture. Victoria has tutored literary studies at the University of Melbourne and Deakin University. Her research has been published in international, peer-reviewed journals and has received numerous accolades such as the Australian Postgraduate Award, the Gwenda Ford English Literature award and the Percival Serle Prize.
