Laura Minor

University of Leeds

Laura Minor is a PhD student at the University of Leeds, originally from Stoke-on-Trent. Her research project - "Reclaiming Female Authorship in British Television Comedy, 2010-2016" - explores female-centred and female-authored comedies in the British televisual landscape by analysing the works of important TV writers: Julia Davis, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michaela Coel, and Caitlin/Caroline Moran.

Her main research interests include representations of feminism, gender, comedy, class, and emotion on film and television as well as the inequalities facing these areas, with her most recent publication in Feminist Media Studies focusing on Paul Abbott's Shameless and its US TV remake.

She has also interned for the film production and distribution company Vertigo Films and currently teaches film studies at her home university.
