I really enjoyed delivering my paper titled ‘On the rights track: song life stories, rights migrations and the priceless ‘original” at this years IASPM UK & Ireland conference in Huddersfield on 3rd September this year. See the related post for further details about the conference itself and the panel session which I delivered alongside Dr Dai Griffiths and Dr Jan Butler. Here’s a few pictures to serve as a record of me delivering my paper (photos of me kindly taken and posted on Twitter by my colleague Kirsten Etheridge). It was a great pleasure to have so many experts in the audience, including Franco Fabbri, Joe Bennett and Richard Osborne whose questions and comments were all very much appreciated. Thank you for listening.

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.
