Lecturer in Media, Lancaster University

I am a Lecturer in Media at Lancaster University, UK. My research explores the cultural politics of the British monarchy, considering the role of the monarchy in producing consent for global inequalities and class power. My monograph, Running the Family Firm: how the monarchy manages its image and our money, is forthcoming with Manchester University Press (2021).
