Rosey is a senior lecturer in Creative & Digital Technologies and has worked at the University of Chichester since 1997 contributing across the Media curriculum, as well as to a range of modules in other departments.

Much of Rosey’s contribution to the teaching curriculum includes critical approaches to understanding Digital Media, Identity and Social change, Social Media, Global Film and Television, Reality TV, Celebrity Cultures and Comedy.

Throughout her teaching practice Rosey continuously seeks to enhance the teaching and learning experience of students by celebrating diversity in the teaching environment. Her teaching specialism is in the development of strategies to support students who may come from Widening Participation backgrounds and who face additional challenges to their learning experience.

Rosey has a keen interest in feminist research and her doctoral research is exploring the ‘Battle of personality’ through the mediated process of the celebrification of contemporary British Politicians. Previous research also includes historical representations of women’s motorcycling and motorcycle sub-cultures; girl’s cultures, Fan Communities, the relationship between the Media and body ideals, sexuality, media activism and journalism.

Rosey’s research has been presented at conferences, both nationally and internationally, and she has published on aspects of feminism, fan cultures, sexuality, girl’s cultures and media representations of transgressive femininities.

In a previous life Rosey worked in nursing, social care and youth work counselling homeless young people. She has also been a motorcycle instructor.
