Dr Megen de Bruin-Molé is a cultural studies scholar with a background in literary criticism, and an emphasis on popular fiction.

Her AHSS school-funded PhD research, conducted at Cardiff University, focused on the ethics and aesthetics of mashup, using the theme of monsters and the monstrous to explore how and why the twenty-first century persistently appropriates historical fictions and figures. She also holds an MA in literature and culture, and a Research MA in literary studies, both from the University of Amsterdam. You can follow her (and her research) on her blog:

Megen is also an editor with the Critical Posthumanism Network’s Genealogy project. She was previously the central editor and social media manager for the literary organisation Poetry International, and a Project Assistant on the Changing Attitudes in Public Discourse project. 

Research interests

My research interests include popular feminism, adaptation, and contemporary remix culture, and I am the author of the author of several academic publications in these areas. My areas of specialisation include (neo-)Victorian fiction, post-1800s popular media, twenty-first-century adaptation and remix culture, and monster studies. I am also interested in Gothic fiction, gender studies, postcolonial literature, film and television studies, and fan studies.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA).

From 2015-2017 I taught at Cardiff University, with the School of English, Communication and Philosophy. Since November 2017 I have been a part of Winchester School of Art's MA in Global Media Management, where I am the Module Leader for the creative/critical module 'Critical Media Practice' and the core module 'Global Media 2: Industries and Technologies'. In 2018 I was awarded a Vice Chancellor's Teaching Award for my work on this programme. I also teach on 'Global Media 1: Ideas and Debates, 'Professional and Academic Skills', and the MA option module 'Digital Cultures', and am engaged in MA and PhD supervision across the university.

MA Global Media Management explores critical understandings of the technological, social, cultural and political implications of changes associated with the global development of the Internet, social networks and mobile media. There is strong focus on media practice and applying academic debates and industry perspectives to the investigation of media organisations, consumers and audiences, and digital innovation. Case studies and research explored with students examine strategies and management techniques employed by commercial, non government (NGO) and community based (CBO) organisations, how creative ideas are developed, and how audiences and users respond to them, or generate their own media material.

Distinctive parts of the programme include study visits, guest speaker lectures, and research-informed learning and teaching linked to the Winchester Centre for Global Futures in Art, Design and Media. Each year there is an annual symposium in which students on the programme join with invited academic researcher and industry practitioners to explore a specific theme.
