PhD Candidate, Royal Holloway

I am a PhD candidate based in the Department of Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London. My research interests are around the politics of creative labour and work. My PhD thesis is focusing on the politics around the creative labour and work of bloggers, with a specific interest in travel bloggers. In particular, I am looking at how travel bloggers undertake labour and work to create a desirable, performed self across both their physical and online bodies and the associated politics around this performance. My previous research has focused on the aesthetic labour of individuals within the grime music scene as a means to investigate the wider politics of the grime aesthetic.
