Here are overviews of areas of research I am currently working on, most of which were initiated during my MA at Birkbeck. I am mainly researching issues linked to the circulation of images and memorialisation processes and practices.
My three main areas of research currently are:
The presentation and representation of dissent in the museum, in particular through material culture, and the negotiated narratives of dissent within the museum.
The use of reenactment in activism and memorialisation processes, as a way to engage with an audience who did not live through the events, and to reframe and reclaim history.
The circulation of portraits of genocide victims and their reframing as they migrate from bureaucracy to remembrance.
