Biography

Dr Nicolá Goc is feminist scholar and adjunct senior lecturer in Journalism, Media and Communication at the University of Tasmania who retired from teaching in February 2017 after 17 years at the University. She was a founding member of the Journalism Media and Communications discipline. Nicolá has published many books, book chapters and journal articles on journalism and media, journalism history, gender and ethics, vernacular photography, social history and Tasmanian history. Upcoming 2017 publications include 'Snapshot Photography and a Gendered Poetics of the beach, 1900s-1920s', in Travel and Representation, Garth Lean, Russell Staiff and Emma Waterton(eds), New York and Oxford: Berghahn and 'Infanticide in 19th Century England', in Oxford Encyclopedia of Crime, Media, and Popular Culture, New York: Oxford University Press. Her 2014 book, Women, Infanticide and the Press, 1822–1922: News Narratives in England and Australia (Ashgate) has been widely reviewed in international journals.  She is co-author (with Jason Bainbridge and Liz Tynan) of the standard media and journalism textbook: Media and Journalism: New Approaches to Theory and Practice 3rd edition (OUP 2015). Before joining the University Nicolá worked as a news journalist, feature writer, social historian and copywriter. She has also worked extensively as an oral historian and in her best-selling books Sandy Bay a Social History (1997) and Tasmanians Remember (1999) she employed historical research and oral history to tell the stories of ordinary people and the impact they had on their times. In 2016 Nicolá coordinated the oral history unit at the University of Tasmania as part of the Family History Diploma. Nicolá is a former fellow of the National Sound and Film Archive Fellowship (2014) and a recipient of a 2015 Tasmanian Community Grant working with post-war migrant women which culminated in her 2016 exhibition Snapshot Photography and Migrant Women – A Tasmanian Experience, at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery which attracted more than 33,000 visitors. Through a 2016 University of Tasmania Teaching Development Grant she created a Gender Equity image bank of digital images representing females in non-traditional employment to be used in teaching as a way to reduce the gender inequity in the workforce. Her current research focus is on women and history and female representation. She is regularly interviewed by the media in Australia and overseas on the issues of: gender; gender and representation; gender and the media; journalism history; journalism and media ethics; media history; vernacular (family) photography; and on social and cultural history topics.

Women Infantcide and the Press 1822-1922 book cover by Nicola GocIn her study of anonymous infanticide news stories that appeared from 1822 to 1922 in the heart of the British Empire, in regional Leicester, and in the penal colony of Australia, Nicola Goc uses Critical Discourse Analysis to reveal both the broader patterns and the particular rhetorical strategies journalists used to report on young women who killed their babies. Her study takes Foucault's perspective that the production of knowledge, of 'facts' and truth claims, and the exercise of power, are inextricably connected to discourse. Newspaper discourses provide a way to investigate the discursive practices that brought the nineteenth-century infanticidal woman - known as 'the Infanticide' - into being. The actions of the infanticidal mother were understood as a fundamental threat to society, not only because they subverted the ideal of Victorian womanhood but also because a woman's actions destroyed a man's lineage. For these reasons, Goc demonstrates, infanticide narratives were politicised in the press and woven into interconnected narratives about the regulation of women, women's rights, the family, the law, welfare, and medicine that dominated nineteenth-century discourse. For example, the Times used individual stories of infanticide to argue against the Bastardy Clause in the Poor Law that denied unmarried women and their children relief. Infanticide narratives often adopted the conventions of the courtroom drama, with the young transgressive female positioned against a body of male authoritarian figures, a juxtaposition that reinforced male authority over women. Alive to the marked differences between various types of newspapers, Goc's study offers a rich and nuanced discussion of the Victorian press's fascination with infanticide. At the same time, infanticide news stories shaped how women who killed their babies were known and understood in ways that pathologised their actions. This, in turn, influenced medical, judicial, and welfare policies regarding the crime of infanticide and created an acceptable context for how society viewed these women. Alive to the marked differences between various types of newspapers, Goc's study offers a rich and nuanced discussion of the Victorian press's fascination with infanticide.

Expertise

Nicolá's research interests include:

  • Media and gender
  • Media and journalism history
  • Media and journalism ethics
  • Photography and visual communication
  • Vernacular and family photography
  • Foucault
  • Photo-journalism

Nicolá is principally interested in qualitative research that explores the intertextual relationships between the media and female subjectivity, in particular how women and girls are framed by the media and also how women and girls use media across all formats to communicate a sense of self.

Her research is focused on four main areas:

  • Gender, ethics and media practice
  • Journalism and media practices and the production of social subjects, including the 'deviant female'
  • Nineteenth and twentieth century journalism and media practices
  • Photography as social media
  • Photography and female subjectivity

Research Themes

Nicolá's research relates to the University's research theme of Creativity, Culture and Society. Her research interests include understanding the ways in which media representation (both textual and visual) impacts on women and girls. With a focus on media history her work analyses past production practices, using sociological, cultural studies, historical and journalistic theoretical frameworks, to better understand current media practices. She applies Foucauldian critical discourse analysis to media texts with a feminist inflection, as exemplified in her recent book, Women, Infanticide and the Press, 1822–1922: News Narratives in England and Australia (Ashgate 2013). This book has been widely reviewed in international journals for the success of her feminist Foucauldian approach to the analysis of historical news texts. The 'Foucauldian lens adds considerable depth to the analysis and brings to focus the tangible value of applying this theoretical and philosophical approach to the textual data drawn from newspapers' (Nye 2015). Her close reading of texts in this 'highly interesting book' (Peel 2014) provides a ''meticulous and discriminating reading of news texts' (Hogg 2015) and provides a 'different but illuminating analysis of the discourse of deviance, criminality and motherhood' (Nye 2015). Her research has focused on the media's representation of the 'deviant maternal' and she has written widely on the media's representation of mothers Kate McCann, Sally Clark and Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton.

In collaboration with colleagues in Health Sciences and Nursing at the University of Tasmania Nicolá directed the video, The Heart of Nursing.

Through her work with Convict Women’s Press Inc.,  and the Female Convicts Research Centre Inc. Nicolá researches the lives of convict women transported to Van Diemen’s Land. Her most recent research examining women convicted of infanticide who were transported to Van Diemen’s Land was presented at the Female Convict Research Centre May 2017 seminar.

Through a 2016 University of Tasmania Teaching Development Grant she created a Gender Equity image bank of digital images representing females in non-traditional employment to be used in teaching as a way to reduce the gender inequity in the workforce.

She has researched the role photography – both news and vernacular – plays in creating a female sense of self. She is motivated to communicate her research outcomes beyond the academy and, as well as disseminating her research through conferences, public talks, media appearances and in academic books, book chapters and journal articles, she has curated several public exhibitions.

Her current research focus is on women and history and female representation through snapshot photography. Her Facebook page Is This You? Reuniting Lost Photographs has almost 2,000 members.

The Heart of Nursing (2015)$6,165
Description
The role of the nurse in healthcare has changed significantly over recent decades with a blurring of the hierarchical barriers between doctors and nurses. Nurses have greater education, autonomy and expertise than ever before but the media continue to portray nurses through stereotypes. The Heart of Nursing project seeks to increase the understanding of how care is enacted in encounters between nurses and the nursed. It will investigate the way nurses view their role and explore the impact of public storytelling on this vision from the perspective of the nurse, the nursed, and the audience.
