Emily Harmer

After completing her PhD at Loughborough University in 2012, Emily Harmer was appointed as a Research Associate in May 2013 to work with Professor David Deacon on a Leverhulme Trust funded project analysing continuities and changes in the press reporting of British General Elections between 1918 and 2010. Her PhD thesis mapped the qualitative and quantitative representation of women as politicians, voters and relatives of politicians in British election coverage between 1918 and 2010. She is therefore particularly interested in the relationships between media, politics and gender and the historical development of such relationships.
