Join us at Oxford’s 2018 IF Festival

Come and join myself and Dr Jan Butler at Oxford’s IF Festival on Friday 19th October 7-8.30pm at the Wig and Pen (9-13 George Street Oxford, OX1 2AU) for an interactive session based upon the 2010 Squeeze album Spot the Difference.  Get a feel for the complexities of music and copyright and test your close listening skills by participating in our hands-on activities… headphones provided!  It promises to be a fun evening and one which we hope will have you tuning into the fine detail of the music you hear and obsessing over the small print on your music purchases for years to come!

In 2010 I completed my PhD thesis entitled ‘Transforming Music Criticism? An examination of changes in music journalism in the English broadsheet press from 1981 to 1991’, at Oxford Brookes University. My research entailed face to face interviews with fourteen long-standing music journalists representing all music genres from the English quality press, the construction of a database cataloguing and analysing all music-related content from a sample of quality newspapers from the period 1981 to 1991 and the detailed discourse analysis of a sample of live music reviews. My key area of expertise is music criticism and music journalism, particularly relating to popular music (including rock, pop, jazz, world music), however my broader teaching and research specialisms cover a wide range of popular music related topics, particularly those associated with popular music and identity (race, gender, nationality, subcultures) and popular music and film. Since completing my PhD I have held associate lecturing posts at Oxford Brookes University, Oxford University, Solent University, Brunel University, the University of Bristol, Bucks New University, the University of Northampton and the University of Worcester.
