I joined the Politics Team as a part time lecturer and researcher following the successful completion of my doctoral studies under the supervision of Professor Brendan Evans in January 2011. Since then I have co-organised with Dr Richard Hayton two academic conferences focused upon oratory in British party politics. Each of these conferences is in the process of being taken forward as edited collections through Manchester University Press.
I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and the Publicity Officer for the Political Studies Association Specialist Group for the Study of Conservative politics. I have presented a number of papers at a range of academic conferences at universities such as the University of Leeds, University of Hull, and the University of Manchester, amongst others.
Media enquiries: I am happy to field media enquiries in the areas of research expertise, with particular reference to rhetoric, oratory, and British party politics more broadly.
In terms of my research specialisms, these are political communication, ideologies, and Labour studies. My interests extend to include the rhetorical construction of national identities in the United Kingdom, the impact of Britains changing relationship with the European Union, and international relations more broadly defined.
I have outputs in leading academic journals such as British Politics, Politics, and Political Quarterly as well as Representation, Public Policy and Administration Research, and Britain Politics Review, amongst others. As well as editing two volumes for MUP, I am also writing a chapter for an edited collection with Palgrave.
I am also something of a prolific book reviewer for Political Studies Review and the LSE, and I am also the author of a monograph of my doctoral thesis entitled Michael Foot and the Labour Leadership, published through CSP.
