Dr Mark McGlashan

BA(Hons), PGCert, MA, MRes, PhD, FHEA

I am Associate Professor of Corpus Linguistics and Discourse Studies in the College of English and Media at Birmingham City University (BCU). 


My research combines approaches from Corpus Linguistics, (Critical) Discourse Studies, Computational Linguistics, and Data Science to study a range of issues pertinent to (online) safety and security – particularly relationships between language and abuse – such as extreme misogyny and sexism, nationalism and radicalisation, safeguarding, and mis/disinformation. Much of my present work focuses on applications of corpus lingusitics in safeguarding in the context of the following grants:


Before joining BCU, I held research positions at Lancaster University's Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science and Security Lancaster, as well as in the WMG Cyber Security Centre at The University of Warwick. I earned an ESRC-funded PhD in Applied Linguistics from Lancaster University and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
