The September 2008 Cultural Studies Review, co-edited with Cristyn Davies and Robert Payne,  is a special issue focusing on cultures of panic, particularly recent examples of moral panic arising from issues of race, gender and sexuality. The diverse essays deal with ‘men of Middle Eastern appearance’, the trial of Private Kovko, the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the use of Ritalin®, concerns around children and sexuality in Australia, and arts funding in the United States during the ‘culture wars’.
