Pamela Turton-Turner holds a PhD in Art and Design Theory at the University of Tasmania, Australia. She is now an independent scholar after a 13-year teaching career at the university where she taught art and design theory, general philosophy and gender studies between 2003-16. Her main research interest involves feminist aesthetics and the semiotics of neoliberal discourses evident in postfeminist visual culture. Her primary concern is the interrelationship between fetishized glamor and violence in popular media and its negative impact on the cultural encoding of female identity. Turton-Turner’s work is disseminated in several scholarly articles, conference papers and discussions. She is a regular peer-reviewer for scholarly journals as well as being an ongoing associate editor for Common Ground Publishing in the US. In 2013 Turton-Turner was inducted as one of 35 nominated interdisciplinary scholars into the Oxford Round Table, Harris-Manchester College, Oxford University.
