Tonica Hunter – From top-down to bottom-up: Changes in “literary” responses to the London 2011 Riots

Tonica Hunter recently graduated from the University of Oxford with an MSc in Migration Studies in the Oxford Department for International Development Studies (ODID). Her research aims to understand the plights and portrayals of ethnic minorities and/or low socio-economic classes in urban spaces and looks at the way in which literatures and media are used in these contexts, and she discusses this work here. She has received award and acknowledgement for excellence in Higher Education by the LSBC (London School’s and the Black Child) Awards (2011) and Future Leader’s Magazine (2011 and 2012) which annually lists the top 100 black students in the UK.
