Biography

Colin has an interdisciplinary academic background in American studies and completed his doctorate at the University of Sheffield in 2009.  His primary research interests concern issues from within contemporary sporting cultures, with a particular focus on the representations of sport within media contexts.

He has published academic articles and book chapters on a variety of sporting topics – including basketball and professional cycling – and presented research at international conferences.
