I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in Cultural Sciences, based in the Division of Musicology. My research interests are diverse but my current project explores the political place-making practices of British and Swedish pop music. The main output of this will be a monograph entitled Pop and Politics at the City’s Edge: Protest Music in the Suburbs of London and Gothenburg.
I lecture on various Sound Studies and Musicology courses, and I am a member of the Popular Culture Research Node and the Science & Technology Studies Reading Group. I am also a guest editor of POPULÄR: Nordic Journal for Popular Culture Research.
You can find my work in Global Intellectual History; Eighteenth-Century Studies; Emotion, Space & Society; and Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers. My first book – Edinburgh’s Enlightenment Geographies: Planning, Surveying, Travelling, Compiling – is due out with Boydell & Brewer in 2020.
