Lecturer in Media and Communication, University of Leicester

I teach and research in the field of feminist media and cultural studies. My central interest in the gender politics of mediated voices and public speech; my forthcoming monograph - entitled Gender, Media and Voice - argues that contemporary media culture is characterised by what I term 'communicative injustice'.

I also have ongoing research interests in feminist anger, and I have written about the role of rage in relation to the #MeToo movement, as well as in popular culture more broadly.

I am co-editor of a book on the wedding spectacle in contemporary media culture. I have also published on reality television, the mediation of the women’s suffrage movement, the history of talk shows on British television, and the class politics of reality celebrity.

I am co-convenor of the Media and Gender research group at the University of Leicester, and I am Assistant Editor for the European Journal of Cultural Studies.
