Nice to Meet You

Hi there! My name is Bel and I love working on a new project!

I’m an anthropologist with a specific interest in profiling tactics that target and/or marginalise minority groups. A natural planner and organiser, I develop inclusive and empowering projects with the aim to support communities.

In 2014, I received my PhD from the University of Hull for my dissertation on ethical decisionmaking around local authority caravan site provision for Travellers in England. Alongside my academic experience, I also have a background in market research.

Beyond research, collaborating with a fantastic team, I was able to bring all of my skills and interests together to organise the very first Returning the Gaze conference as well as co-found the European Race and Imagery Foundation (ERIF). Following the first conference, I have continued to oversee the progress of events, research and campaigns within ERIF.

Meanwhile, I continue to conduct my own independent research in the fields of social policy, culture and media. Additionally, I offer workshops to promote critical media literacy skills and short talks on the power  of discourse through radicalised visual culture.
