Thesis Title

The discursive representation of British wildlife in news texts 1785 to 2005

Current Research

My PhD research uses a diachronic corpus-assisted discourse analytical approach to investigate how key wildlife species in Britain are represented in news discourse between 1785 and 2005.  This research is attached to the Leverhulme-funded project  ‘People’, ‘Products’, ‘Pests’ and ‘Pets’: the discursive representation of animals currently being run between Lancaster University and King's College London.  Links to further information about this project can be found below.
