Dr Georgina Turner
In 2010, Georgina completed a PhD in Communication and Media Studies, looking at the ways in which a magazine (re)constructs an identity for itself and for its readers, and the kinds of inclusion and exclusion that this entails. She has published and presented aspects of this work in journals such as Journalism Studies and at several international conferences. Her principle research interest is media representation. She has a BA in Journalism Studies from the University of Sheffield and previously worked as a full-time journalist with guardian.co.uk. Following completion of her PhD she joined Loughborough University teaching CMS as well as working as a freelance journalist. Georgina is also the Imprints Research Associate working with Professor Liesbet van Zoonen, focusing on popular culture and audience responses.
Georgina is now based at Liverpool University.
