Millicent is a Lecturer in English in the 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. Her first book, Literary Festivals and Contemporary Book Culture, was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2018.
