Hi, I'm Angela!
I have a wealth of experience in academic research, with a BA in Ancient History & Egyptology from University College London and an MA (distinction) & a PhD in Museum Studies from the University of Leicester. I worked as a Medicine Galleries Research Fellow at the Science Museum in 2019 and I have published both academically and for the general public. You can read my recent peer reviewed article here and my recent blogs here.
In the last few years, I have presented at numerous conferences, lectured at universities and museums and appeared in videos telling stories about human remains in museums. Some projects include:
- chairing two public debates on human remains at the World Museum Liverpool (UK)
- doing a filmed live Reportage on my career at the Documentary Media Centre in Leicester (UK)
- running a workshop on human remains as displaced people at New Walk Museum in Leicester for Refugee Week (UK)
- featuring on Dig it With Raven telling the stories of mummies at the Musée du Louvre
I offer consultancy services for museums and cultural institutions on how to research, communicate and project curate around the topic of human remains in museums and their sensitivities. If you would like to discuss this further, please email me here.
I develop, manage and produce events and exhibitions related to human remains in museums. In 2019, I was invited to produce a day long event at New Walk Museum in Leicester for Refugee Week. I produced a workshop, three public talks and a relabeling on the theme of Egyptian Mummies as displaced people.
I also develop projects for museum professionals, such as workshops, talks, storytelling training.
