Theodora Galanis is a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide in the Department of English, Creative Writing and Film. Her thesis, titled “Figuring the Sea, Inland: Oceanic Imaginaries in Contemporary Australian Literature”, aims to subvert and re-hydrate the settler-colonial figure of ‘Australia’s inland sea’ to explore the complexities of national identity and environmental catastrophe. This project forms part of the Australian Research Council Special Research Initiative, "Between Indian and Pacific Oceans: Reframing Australian Literatures", led by chief investigators Meg Samuelson and Mandy Treagus.
