Elise Holland

Elise is a third year PhD student at the University of Melbourne. Her PhD thesis focuses on sexual objectification – that is, the transformation of an individual into a thing for another’s sexual use. In particular, Elise is investigating how objectification impacts the perceived moral standing of both women and young girls, and the implications this has in terms of how we perceive and treat females. She is also broadly interested in the psychology of power, choice, and person perception. She completed a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) and a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Melbourne in 2009.
