Across all my writings, my interests in archives and memory, and in technology and its role in human life, have been iterated in a wide range of subjects — from Sunset Boulevard to the Australian Western, from ministerial responsibility to live media performance. These writings have been published in a range of peer-reviewed forums, as listed below.
