About

I am Research Fellow at the University of Westminster, where I have been working with John Wyver since 2011 on the AHRC-funded project Screen Plays: Theatre Plays on British Television and its outputs. From October 2016, I will be Mid-Career Research Fellow at the Birmingham Centre for Media and Cultural Research, Birmingham City University. I serve as Associate Editor of The Radio Journal: International Studies in Broadcast & Audio Media and on the UK Radio Archives Advisory Committee.

I am a cultural historian working on the interconnecting histories of theatre, television, radio and the printed word in 20th-century Britain, focusing on radio and television programmes which adapt and create dramatic and literary forms, especially those which engage with the literary and history of ancient Greece. My work is concerned with issues of adaptation, intermediality, education and audiences and explores overarching questions about the roles of mass media in the cultural and educational lives of individuals and in the literary worlds of 20th-century Britain. Archival research and textual analysis underpin my research.
