Millicent Weber

Millicent Weber is a Lecturer in English in the ANU’s School of Literature, Languages and Linguistics. She researches how people engage with books and literary culture: everything from prizes and book reviews, to audience experience at literary festivals, to social media trolling of authors, to amateur production of audiobooks, podcasts, or fan-fiction. She has also worked as an archivist at the University of Melbourne Archives and the National Library of Australia.

Millicent has published articles in peer-reviewed journals including First MondayArchives and Manuscripts, Continuum and Convergence and literary journal Overland, and co-edited Publishing Means Business: Australian Perspectives (Monash University Publishing, 2017). Her first book, Literary Festivals and Contemporary Book Culture, was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2018.
