My name is Bethany and I’m currently based in Bristol, U.K.
I hold a first class honours degree from Central Saint Martins and a Masters degree in Visual Culture and Art History at Oxford University. I recently completed my doctorate at Central Saint Martins, researching trauma narratives in digital culture under an AHRC TECHNE scholarship and have lectured at Central Saint Martins and presented my research and creative work at Brighton University, London College of Fashion, Bath Spa and Oxford University, and have published my academic writing at First Monday and Palgrave Macmillan’s ‘Discourses of Anxiety’ collection.
I work in arts education and am the Editor in Chief and founder of the mental health journal Doll Hospital.
My work has been featured in Dazed and Confused, Vice, xoVain, Rookie Magazine, Buzzfeed, The New Statesman, i-D and The Hairpin to name a few.
I’m currently making a documentary called Sad Girl Cinema on mental health and movie representation with artist Claire Biddles.
I hope you’re having a cool day!
