Dr Laura Deane has taught at Flinders University since 2002, principally in English, Politics, and Australian Studies. She is currently employed as a Lecturer in Humanities.
My PhD, Australian Psychoses: Women's Madness and Colonial Psychosis, was awarded the Vice-Chancellor's Prize for Doctoral Thesis Excellence in 2013. It considers texts of madness in fiction by Kate Grenville and Christina Stead as a feature of a wider cultural pathology that has its roots in colonial paranoia about 'race' and gender.
