I am a Reader in Archival Studies and Oral History at University College London, UK and former archivist at the People’s History Museum in Manchester. I am also the vice-chair of the UK Community Archives and Heritage Group and research on issues relating to participatory heritage practices and community-based archiving, including leading the UCL AHRC- funded Research for Community Heritage team Dig Where We Stand (2012-13). My writing focusses on issues relating to archival activism, participatory practice and social justice including ‘Archival activism. Independent and community-led archives, radical public history and the heritage professions’, InterActions 2011, (with Duff, Suurtamm, & Wallace) ‘Social justice impact of archives: a preliminary investigation’, Archival Science (2013) and a recently jointly edited special issue of Archival Science on Archival Activism / Activist Archiving (December 2015). As a member of the joint UCL / University of Gothenburg Centre for Critical Heritage Studies I am also collaborating with Astrid von Rosen and other colleagues from the Archives cluster on revisiting and reimagining Sven Lindqvist's Dig Where You Stand.
