About dB and discourse

dB and discourse is the place for thoughts on what I hear in what I hear.

I write as a music obsessive, first and foremost, but this blog is also about my personal discoveries of how music can inform and challenge issues in ‘extra-musical’ spheres – society, politics, culture and identity.

I completed my MA in Applied Linguistics at the Univeristy of Birmingham in 2016. My dissertation combined corpus linguistics and discourse analysis to address representations of migrants in the British press as both perpetrators and victims of crime. I am currently drafting a research proposal for a PhD in Applied Linguistics. 

My research interests include: critical analysis of musical discourse, sociolingusitics, music and ideology, and political discourse in civil protest.

Currently, I am a lecturer at Al-Faisal University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
