About Me

Media historian Kylie Andrews recently completed her doctoral thesis, “Australian broadcasting’s female ‘pilgrims’: Women and work in the post-war ABC”.  She has published articles in History Australia and Media International Australia and was the recipient of the Clare Burton Scholarship for her research into gender equity in Australian broadcasting. Kylie’s interests focus on histories of media and gender, production studies and biography. Her research is informed by her previous career in film, television and audio production as a production manager and producer, where she worked on corporate and commercial projects, animated feature film, broadcast design, documentary and short film. She is currently the Secretary of the Oral History Association of NSW and an Associate Member of the Australian Centre for Media History.
