Job title Senior Lecturer in Cultural&Media Studies
Research overview <p>For many years I have taught and researched in the interdisciplinary area of combinations of psychosocial theory, cultural and media studies and sociology. My interests are in the psychoanalytic aspects of the public sphere and its governance, particularly policy development based on the idea of civic renewal and the centrality of communities, and therapeutic culture and the place of emotions in public life. My early writings were on visual culture and representations of disability from within a psychosocial framework.</p><p><strong>Selected publications</strong></p><p>Evans, J. and Hesmondhalgh, D.
