In case you don’t regularly check my resume for updates (like a normal person), I have some pretty exciting news. I recently found out that my proposal was approved, and I’ll be authoring my very own chapter in a REAL BOOK. Not only that, but it’s an academic book, and I’ll be contributing along with people with doctorates, so I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity.
The book will be called Quieting the Madness: Entertainment Media’s Shift into More Accurate Depictions of Mental Illness and will look at the more realistic ways in which media has begun to portray mental illnesses. My chapter will be a look at the portrayal of depression in Joe Wright’s 2005 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.
Super excited about this project!
