I am the convenor of the MA Promotional Media: Public Relations, Advertising & Marketing. I am also co-convenor of the Heretical Finance Reading Group, which meets first Mondays of the month at Goldsmiths’ Political Economy Research Centre.
My main research interest is in financial markets and how they are mediated in global and local discourses. My work to date has explored how finance is shaped by communication practices in a range of sectors including hedge funds, investment banking, life insurance and informal investment schemes. My 2017 book, ‘Trust, Power and Public Relations in Financial Markets’ (Routledge) probes the many financial communications failures since the global financial crisis.
I am also engaged in an inter-disciplinary mapping of Critical Advertising, Critical Marketing and Critical Public Relations.
