Assistant Professor in Cultural Industries and Media, University of Leicester

My primary research interests are in the cultural and creative industries, cultural policy and film policy, and creative practice.

I have an overarching interest in cultural politics in the post war period informed by the traditions of cultural materialism and critical political economy which, for me, has meant a focus on structures, policy and creative agency. All my work seeks to understand power relations and their effect on practices and identities, and I particularly like working with organisations and people outside academia.

I’ve published on a range of subjects including cultural policy, film policy, the creative industries, radical documentary, short film, disability arts and the films of Shane Meadows.
