It’s a great honour and privilege to have been recently awarded the title of one of the ten ‘New Generation Thinkers 2012’ by the AHRC and BBC Radio 3. I’m really looking forward to working on developing some of the themes from my research into material with the producers at Radio 3 and BBC Television Arts. As you may have guessed this rather skeletal website was rushed into existence when I learnt about the award a little while ago, hopefully I’ll find time to put something more substantial here soon.
This is me (far right) with the other ten winners of the 2012 scheme:
I’ll be recording my first material for ‘Night Waves’ this week which will be broadcast at some point over the next fortnight. I’ll try to keep this website updated with the full details of future media appearances. I’m doing a short interview with BBC Radio Essex tomorrow morning (14th June).
Rather than repeat what has been said here are a few different reports giving details of this unique and exciting scheme along with the 2012 launch:
