Research topic: Reimagining Celebrity:  Towards understanding the impact of positioning famous fictional characters as celebrities in UN communication activities
 
Supervisors:
A combination of experiences in the academic, development, and visual art sectors has been the inspiration for Kylie’s current research project. Investigating the practice of using famous fictional characters to communicate with adults, the study focuses on those initiatives that have targeted international audiences and questions how positioning characters as celebrities impacts on message dissemination. 
 
Interested in the ways states and organisations communicate political messages, Kylie has taught courses on politics and international relations in countries such as Australia and Fiji.  Her published work includes journal articles, book chapters, and storybooks.
