Author Biography

Ilse Astrid Ras, Oxford Brookes University

Dr Ilse A. Ras completed her PhD in English Language at the University of Leeds. She also holds an MSc in Criminology from the University of Leicester and is a co-founder of the Poetics and Linguistics Association Special Interest Group on Crime Writing. Her work and teaching often crosses the boundaries between English language and Criminology, focusing on the use of language to express, maintain and reinforce (capitalist) power structures, using corpus-assisted critical discourse analysis and critical stylistics to examine this language.
