Dr Michael Skey
I am currently a lecturer in Media & Culture at the University of East Anglia. I was awarded my PhD in October 2008 from the LSE and since then have taught sociology at University of Leicester and UEL and Media & Cultural Studies at University of Kingston. My research interests are in the areas of national identity and globalisation, discourse theory, media and everyday life. I have published work on mass rituals, theories of nationalism and cosmopolitan identities and have written a book, entitled ‘National Belonging and Everyday Life’, published in October 2011 by Palgrave Macmillan. Future work will look to explore issues around identity and security, media events and sport.
