  • Lecturer in Museum Studies (Information Studies)

Research interests

My research and teaching interests focus on: 

  • Critical Heritage Studies & Museology
  • Cultural Politics
  • Nationalism and National Identities
  • Museums and Migration
  • Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH)
  • Museum Learning 
  • Visitor Studies
  • Community Heritage, Co-production, and Digital Participation

Linking these themes is an interest in how people utilise the past in the present and the role that cultural heritage plays in shaping people's sense of self and their relationships with others. I am particularly interested in issues surrounding identities, belonging, place, diversity and empathy in museums.

Additional Information

I joined the University of Glasgow in 2018. 

I have held research and teaching positions at the International Centre for Cultural and Heritage Studies, Newcastle University, the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University.

My PhD, completed in 2014, examined the role of heritage in young people's conceptualisations of national identity and belonging in Scotland.

I have worked in Visitor Studies and Education and Interpretation in museums and community heritage organisations in Scotland and Canada, and undertaken research and teaching in collaboration with Tyne & Wear Archives and Museums, North East England. I have also collaborated with the National Library of Scotland as supervisor on collaborative doctoral partnership funded under the Scottish Cultural Heritage Consortium. 

I am an active participant of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies, having attended conferences in Gothenburg (2012), Canberra (2014) and Montreal (2016) and organised events for the ACHS UK Chapter. 

Selected Past Projects

MeLa*: European Museums in an age of migrations, Research Field 01, Newcastle University (with Prof Chris Whitehead (PI), Prof Rhiannon Mason, Dr Susannah Eckersley)

The MeLa Project was a four year multidisciplinary and collaborative Research Project involving nine European Partners, which was funded in 2011 within the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission.

Research Field 01 examined the historical and contemporary relationships between European museum representations and identity, using the focus of “people(s)” and “place” to investigate how fluidity, fragmentation, dislocation and mobility impact on individual and museum constructions of identity and belonging. The analysis of key displays in museums, interviews with museums’ staff and visitor studies highlighted the importance of place for the historical contextualisation of objects and events and, therefore, the explanation of past and present phenomena that may be socially divisive, such as racisms. Through the engagement with place, museums can develop more inclusive forms of representation, localise social differences and tensions, contribute to greater social awareness, and create progressive senses of belonging.

Co-Curate North East, Newcastle University

Co-Curate North East was an interdisciplinary project funded through the AHRC Connected Communities Digital Transformations research scheme. The project worked with schools and community groups across the North East of England to curate digital materials from museums, libraries, archives and community heritage organisations.
