Dr. Mary Debrett

I teach Media Industries on the Bachelor of Media Studies and am also the coordinator for the video production stream within this degree. Prior to my current position I worked in broadcasting in New Zealand for a decade before moving into the educational sector, initially to produce educational documentaries. Following completion of a Masters thesis on public service broadcasting at the University of Auckland, which involved four case studies of "alternative" television broadcasters, I enrolled in a PhD at Latrobe University. My recently completed PhD thesis, titled "Documentary subsidy in Australia and New Zealand: The future of the social project" involved a study of industry attitudes to changes in the funding systems of each country.
