Panizza is the Associate Dean of Arts and Humanities. She is also the coordinator of Media and Cultural Studies.

Background

Panizza has undertaken a number of prominent leadership roles, such as Associate Dean, Program Director, Associate Head of School and course coordinator of the Masters of Professional Communications. Panizza is the chief editor of the internationally recognised journal, Continuum: Journal of Media & Cultural Studies, published by Taylor and Francis, which she has been involved with for over fifteen years. In 2018, she was a visiting Professor at Airlangga University, Indonesia.

She has mentored many early career academics and has been a regular invited speaker for journal publication seminars. Panizza has also been an invited speaker and given plenary and keynotes in the UK, US, Australia and Indonesia, in which she has discussed her work in the field of photography, visual culture, identity, feminism and urban space.

Panizza work has had a significant impact on feminist photography and art practice. For over twenty years Panizza has worked as a documentary photographer and has spent time across Asia, Europe, North and South America. Her PhD was the first in Australia to engage with feminist photographic practices, as a street photographer/photojournalist, and draws subversive critical attention to the body and female representations in the urban landscape. Écriture féminine, which traces a feminin writing of the body, which she has refocused as photographie féminine engages in a self-reflexive ethical photographic practice that subverts dominant representations and seeks to empower through its representation of lived experiences. Twenty years ago, Panizza curated the first feminist photographic exhibition in Western Australia at the Perth Centre of Photography. Since then her visual methodology has influenced a range of national and international artists. Panizza has had fifteen solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions. Her work has been exhibited in London, New York, Frankfurt, Shanghai and in Italy and Australia.
