I’m an academic based in the Communication and Media department at the University of Liverpool. I joined the department in 2014, and am now a Senior Lecturer in Media. I lead undergraduate modules on Gender and Media, and Understanding Magazines, as well as serving as First Year lead, focusing on curriculum development and skills.
My primary research interest is in media discourses and representations, particularly in relation to gender and sexuality. I am interested in the role of media in identity and community and I have written about LGB magazines as a site for the construction of collective identity; I’m interested in print (sub)cultures.
At the moment I’m focused on completing a book project; the book is to be called Lesbian Magazine Discourse: Constructing a Subculture.
