My PhD thesis looks at the Public discourse of moderate Muslims in the UK. The thesis looks at 25 Muslim organisations/individual and will use discourse theory to analyse output of these organisations based on press releases, reports, articles and letters to the press.

As well as looking at political figures/organisations, I will be also looking at output by Muslims in the fields of literature, screen and art and how these also contribute to the public discourse of Muslims.

During the research of the above chapter I was led to look at the portrayal of ethnic minorities on TV and in particular historical drama.
