His research, concerning critical rhetoric and the fiction of David Foster Wallace, has been featured at the ‘Infinite Wallace’ International Conference (Paris University 3, la Sorbonne Nouvelle), and as part of ‘Ghost Stories, Love Stories, New Stories: Reconfiguring David Foster Wallace for the Australian Academy’, a refereed panel at the 2015 AAWP national conference (Swinburne University). This research centers on the critical significance of the term ‘reader’ in Wallace’s short fictions and essays, and its impact on contemporary “conversations” with the author and his texts.

Mitch has also worked as an emcee, youth arts organizer, project manager, and marketing communications coordinator for businesses across Geelong, Melbourne and Western Sydney.
