Dr Kerry Moore is a Lecturer, 3rd Year Tutor and Chair of Undergraduate Admissions at Cardiff University School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies.
She has particular research interests in racism in news and political discourse and in cultural politics and has published on journalism and asylum and refugee issues, media representations of young black men, and Islam in the news. She is Reviews Editor of the journal Social Semiotics.
My research currently focuses on contemporary discourses of racism in the UK, including media and political representations of asylum and migration, 'race' and Islam. More broadly, I am interested in cultural politics and how inequality and social conflict are articulated within British political culture, including questions surrounding national identity, security and human rights, multiculturalism, political protest and crime. My work engages with cultural theory, especially post-Marxism and poststructuralist approaches to discourse analysis.
I am book reviews editor for the journal Social Semiotics. We welcome proposals for book reviews or review essays.
