In her Oxford DPhil thesis, Lincoln College alumna Dr Dominique Bouchard explored the relationship between public art, identity and power in Medieval and Renaissance Italy. She has since had a distinguished career as a curator and educator across the UK, Ireland, and Hong Kong. Dr Bouchard has worked as expert consultant on Northern Ireland for the European Commission, Council of Europe and UN Office of the High Commissioner, has served as curator at the National Army Museum in Chelsea, and is now working with English Heritage as Head of Learning and Interpretation.
Dr George Green is the Lavery-Shuffrey Early Career Fellow in Roman Art and Archaeology at Lincoln College and a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow at the Ashmolean Museum. Dr Green’s research sits at the intersection between Roman archaeology, archaeological science, and numismatics, as he uses scientific techniques to investigate the supplies and networks of gold coinage in Rome and its African and Asian neighbours.
Maria Murad was a Penn Museum Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania where she researched the life of Tlingit Alaskan Florence Shotridge, one of the first Native Americans to lead an anthropological expedition, for her thesis. She is currently completing an MPhil in Visual, Material and Museum Anthropology where her dissertation research focuses on monsters in horror films, but she will be speaking about Oxford’s own Pitt Rivers Museum.
This panel will be chaired by Lily Cate Gunther-Canada, an MSt candidate in Early Modern History (1500-1700).
