Sally Osei-Appiah

Lecturer, School of Media and Communication, University of Leeds

I am a political communication scholar currently lecturing at the School of Media and Communication, University of Leeds. I am particularly interested in research that interrogates political communication strategies of women, the textual and visual representations of gender in media content, and forms of digital campaigning. Additionally, I am interested in the intersecting impact of political communication on democratic engagement.
