Research interests

My research interests fall broadly into the category of intercultural communication, intercultural studies and sociolinguistics. I am specifically interested in how institutional and media discourses mobilise the concept of culture and interculturality to serve ideological agendas. My ethnographic focus on situated practices within specific small culture contexts informs my current research project entitled, ‘An Anthropology of Swimming: Exploring Communication, Identity and Inclusivity in Publically Accessible British Pools’.  My recent publications include:
