Callum is a doctoral researcher within the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Nottingham. His thesis focuses on Populism in 21st Century Britain.
Before beginning his PhD research at the University of Nottingham, Callum completed his undergraduate degree at Aberystwyth University in Politics and International Relations. In 2015, Callum began his dual-degree Master's in European Studies at the University of Flensburg and the University of Southern Denmark. His Master's thesis considered the role of class in the Brexit vote through a Bourdieusian perspective.
The focus of his research takes a comparative approach, studying the role of populist articulation in the discourse of the 5 most supported political parties in the 2015 and 2017 General Elections. Using discourse analysis to interpret a variety of sources, the extent to which each leader adopts a populist approach is examined.
Callum is associated within the British Politics Institute at the University of Nottingham. Further, he has experience working as an Assistant Editor for the peer-reviewed Journal: Culture, Practice and Europeanization.
