Teaching

Research

Antonia’s research interests are in social interaction from the perspectives of discursive psychology and conversation analysis, and engagement with the outdoors for the promotion of wellbeing and development.

Combining her interest in talk with music psychology, Antonia is currently looking at spoken and embodied action in music lessons and performing arts contexts in higher education settings. This research, and her previous research into musical role models and musical identities, informs much of her supervision and teaching, particularly in her third year elective in the social psychology of music.Antonia has organized and co-organized five academic conferences in music psychology including chairing the Music, Identity and Social Interaction Conference held at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, February 2010, and the 6th International Conference for Music Perception and Cognition (ICMPC), August 2000, Keele University. Whilst at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, she was also Managing Editor for the journal Music Performance Research (2008-2010), and has since served as Associate Editor. Antonia is a reviewer for a number of music psychology and related journals.

In addition to her background in music psychology, Antonia is developing research in engagement with the outdoors for the promotion of wellbeing and development. This is currently being explored by looking at individuals' experiences with walking coaching and challenge events such as the 3 Peaks Challenge.
