Research Overview

My current research deals with the multimodal representations of discourses of migration in the British and Spanish online press. I advocate a Cognitive Linguistic Approach to Critical Discourse Studies (CL-CDS), and I am working on a methodology that can shed light on how audience perceptions might be influenced by both shared cognitive capacities and the multimodal constraints of online newspaper discourse. I am also interested in the cognitive dimensions of discourses of Brexit outside the UK, news discourses of social unrest, and the discursive marketisation/assetization processes of HE.

Other interests include manipulative uses of language and images overall, multimodal analysis and theory, and both English and Spanish Cognitive Linguistics.
