Andrea Whittle (Newcastle): Jeremy Corbyn – the ‘authentic' leader? Making sense of the press coverage of Corbyn’s authenticity.

Studies by media scholars at Loughborough and Birkbeck amongst others have shown that the media coverage of Corbyn was consistently biased and disproportionately presented him in a negative light. Polls also showed that the majority of the British public thought that the media was deliberately biased against him. Our research seeks to understand one particular aspect of the media coverage, namely, the way he was framed and evaluated as an ‘authentic’ leader.

And for January 18th 2021 (1-2pm GMT), we have scheduled

Rosina Márquez Reiter  (Open University): Leverage in relationships. Recommendations among Latin American migrants in London
