Sophia teaches me in one of my modules and is also my academic advisor and is exceptional at both ( 2014 Teaching Award nomination under the categories ‘Best Teacher’, ‘Fantastic Feedback’, ‘Best Supervision’, ‘Teaching Employability’)
I teach modules in Heritage Studies, Museum Studies, Archaeological Theory, Heritage
and Development and Heritage and Human Rights. For the University of Kent, I have developed a Master’s programme in International Heritage and Law. I created this programme to fill a gap in the formation of heritage specialists and legal experts. This MA aims to engage students with heritage, human rights, law and development, arguably the most central issues in the field of heritage studies today. Students can take a core module on heritage and development, and choose optional modules that cover Heritage and Human Rights, Archaeological Theory, Cultural Heritage Law, Intellectual Property Rights or Law and Development, before undertaking an extended dissertation over the summer.
I am currently supervising PhD students on topics relating to urban heritage and development; virtual reconstruction of heritage; the Council of Europe’s policies on culture and heitage; slavery in the Caribbean.
