Monique Charles

Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Warwick

Monique Charles completed her PhD at Warwick University focusing on ‘race’, spirituality, class, gender & music as it relates to #Grime. Her thesis is entitled: ‘Hallowed be thy Grime? : A musicological and sociological genealogy of Grime music and its relation to black Atlantic religious discourse.’ (#HBTG?)

Monique’s research highlights her interest in music, spirituality, sociology and the African Diaspora. Her innovative research enabled her to present at the first International Black Doctoral Network conference in the USA (plenary speaker Cornel West) and Britain’s first Blackness in Britain conference (plenary speaker Carolyn Cooper).

Her book chapter 'Grime Central! : Subterranean ground-in grit engulfing manicured mainstream Spaces' in edited volume 'Blackness in Britain' (Routledge), is one of the first scholarly works focusing specifically on Grime.

Monique is a member of The Association for the Study of the Worldwide African Diaspora (ASWAD) and the British Sociological Society. Monique has a love for music and singing, as demonstrated through the numerous vocal and music qualifications she holds.
