Research interests

Critical Discourse Studies (CDS) is a multi-disciplinary pursuit embodying many concepts from across social science and the humanities but my research primarily centres around the analysis of public discourse, specifically the strategies used by social actors in text and talk to propagate their subjective representations of society and maintain the dominant hegemony.  Using corpus linguistic techniques, I analysed the online media’s discursive representation of the British Monarchy from 2010 – 2020 and prior to that I conducted a discursive qualitative analysis of LBC’s Nigel Farage Show in which participants and the host employed a range of rhetorical devices to positively categorise their in-group and negatively construct a group of migrants fleeing persecution.  Currently, I am analysing the right wing populist group, the Freedom Association (TFA), and their campaign to ‘Axe the TV Tax’. 

The project for my PhD is an analysis of the discourse employed by politicians and other prominent public figures in the categorisation of Refugees, Asylum Seekers and Migrants (RASIM) on BBC Radio 4’s panel debate programme, Any Questions, before, during and after the 2016 Brexit Referendum.
