Oline Eaton teaches writing and rhetoric. Her research examines celebrity life-narratives as trans-medially constructed, trans-historically contested, ideologically saturated affective spaces. Her work has been published in Biography, Life Writing, Celebrity Studies Journal, the Journal of American Culture, the Journal of American Studies and Gender, Place and Culture.
Current research includes analysis of representations of work and precarity in Lindsay Lohan’s Beach House (2019) and examination of the affordances of white femininity as manifest in media coverage of First Lady Melania Trump.
