Membership Grade: Advanced Professional Member
An Accredited Indexer since March 2015, I have experience indexing academic, multi-authored, school and trade books. My initial training and profession was in allied health. But now I enjoy indexing a wide range of subjects, reflecting my interests and background. I am available for indexing throughout the year, often including holiday periods, and can usually accommodate work at short notice.
This is an area of great interest to me. I have completed indexes for books on Irish ethnomusicology, the experience of Muslims in Scotland, and courtly literature in medieval Islamic empires.
Indexes have been completed on the subject of popular politics in 18th century Britain, and on various GCSE topics.
Indexes have included: Gutierrez-Albilla’s ‘Aesthetics, Ethics and Trauma in the Cinema of Pedro Almodovar’, Beugnet et al: ‘Indefinite Visions’, and Morgan and Davies’ ‘Hollywood and the Great Depression’.
I am quite a keen amateur artist. Recently I completed an index on ancient Greek art and sculpture. A recent film art book indexed was ‘Indefinite Visions’ (Beugnet et al).
I have worked in educational settings, and retain an interest in this area.
I have previous professional experience of this field, having worked as a Speech Therapist for over five years.
Cooking is a hobby of mine, and I enjoy perusing recipe books.
My Speech and Language therapy degree included this subject. English for Specific Purposes was a topic indexed recently.
I recently completed an index to a book about genre and English for Specific Purposes. Linguistics and phonetics/phonology were major specialisms in my degree.
I have indexed books on popular politics in 18th century Britain, global ethics, political theology, and, most recently, Japanese politics.
Book topics indexed include: the American West; the Russian Revolution; USA – in Vietnam War and the Civil Rights movement; the Middle East; the Tudors; the Spanish voyages of discovery; medicine through the ages.
Many school GCSE topics have been indexed. Generalist and academic books indexed include subjects such as Tudor women, and America/Hollywood in the Great Depression.
I have professional experience and qualifications in this field.
Medieval Islam and early modern Christianity are subjects indexed; also, political theology.
I am a yoga enthusiast.
Two recent indexes on psychoanalysis.
As a parent and having worked professionally in community health I have an interest in related issues.
This has been a theme in various books indexed, including a number of books on film/media studies. Elizabeth Norton’s ‘Tudor Women’ was indexed quite recently.
