Research interests

From "Wretched Savages" to the World's "Most Beautiful" Artefacts: British Ethnographic Collections from Western Australia:

My research focuses on how and why Indigenous Western Australian material culture has been collected by non-Indigenous people, and how and why these objects then made their way to the UK.

By analysing these cross-cultural encounters, I hope to show how such items have helped to shape colonial and postcolonial ideas about value, place and identity.



I am supervised by Dr Zoe Laidlaw (Department of History, RHUL) and Dr Gaye Sculthorpe (Department for Africa, Oceania and the Americas, The British Museum).
