Current Research

My research focuses on cultural representations of social class in the US, in particular Appalachian poverty. I'm interested in how the white working class cultural identity from this region has been co-opted and weaponized by both the political left and right, and to what ends.

My supervisors are Graham Thompson and Nick Heffernan.
