Dr Victoria Flanagan

Senior Lecturer and Convenor of the Master of Children's Literature

Prior to joining Macquarie, Dr Flanagan taught children’s literature at the University of Helsinki. In addition to her teaching, she conducts research in the representation of gendered bodies in children's literature and film and has recently done consulting work for Mattel.

Dr Flanagan explains that the Master of Children's Literature program at Macquarie which is taught by recognised leaders in the field of children's literary criticism, aims to empower students to become critical thinkers. 

“Subjects within the program engage with the latest research in the field of children's literature,” she says. “We aim to provide students with sophisticated research skills so that they can bring a multidisciplinary perspective to children's books and films. We are also committed to providing small classes that are discussion-based, resulting in a high level of instructor-student interaction.”
