Research overview

My research project is part of the (ERC-funded) Spatial Humanities project which aims to show that Geographical Information Systems (GIS) can prove useful to the analysis of qualitative data, for the benefit of disciplines in the Humanities. I will be investigating nineteenth-century newspapers using Corpus Linguistics methods and GIS with a goal to making a contribution to the field of History. The main research question is: ‘how are places represented in British public discourse and how has this changed over time?’

Qualifications

BA(Hons) Sociolinguistics and Sociology, Lancaster University

Other Interests and Hobbies

I love music. I was delighted with the opportunity to conduct the Lancaster University Music Society Choir (2012-2014) and now sing in The Jazz Optimists, a 5-piece jazz band set up by my husband and I (2013-).
