Prior to starting the Lectureship in Sociology at Bristol from 2006, I was Research Associate in the (former) School for Cultural Studies at the University of the West of England (1997- 1999) working with Martin Barker, Jane Arthurs and Ramaswami Harindranth on an ESRC funded project exploring audience responses to David Cronenberg's film, Crash. I completed my PhD inSociology at Bristol in 2003 and worked in the Graduate School of Education, Bristol (2003- 2005) with Leon Tikly, David Gillborn and Chamion Caballero on projects funded by the (former) Department for Education and Skills focused on mixed race pupils in English schools and African-Caribbean educational achievement (Aiming High project).
My main research interests are focused on issues of racialisation, especially in relation to the theoretical and practical aspects of the consumption/production of local/global music cultures and the sociology of media, culture and technology more broadly. I also have an interest in racism/disadvantage in education, as well as research methodologies, particularly the use of archived qualitative data and QDAS in research.
My first solo-authored book Music, Difference and the Residue of Race was published recentlly by Routledge (New York). It critically examines the complex relationship between ideas of race and music by exploring the range of dilemmas, responsibilities and opportunities associated with assumptions of music affinity and preferences by a range of stakeholders in the British world music scene.
