Biography

With a background in Latin American Studies, my teaching is in the areas of Latin American popular culture, film and media, history and cultural politics.

I am a member of the Society for Latin American Studies (SLAS) and the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM), and I have links with several organisations which aim to disseminate information about social justice, human rights and environmental issues in Latin America. I also work closely with Norfolk Minorities Attainment and Achievement Service (MAAS) to organise ‘Gypsy/Traveller Taster Days’ at UEA, raising awareness of the challenges and issues faced by ethnic minorities in HE and providing opportunities for inter-cultural exchange. I am on the executive committee of the Advisory Council for the Education of Romany and other Travellers (ACERT) and am an associated member of the European Academic Network on Romani Studies

In my free time, I am an amateur musician and played for many years with local Klezmer band, Klunk.
