Participates in 1 Session
I have worked in the cultural sector for over seventeen years, acquiring skills in collections management and arts administration. I worked as a museum specialist at the National Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C.) and as research assistant for the Repatriation Office at the Smithsonians National Museum of Natural History (Washington, D.C.). Most recently, I worked as a researcher at the Pankhurst Center Heritage Museum (Manchester) and the Prisons Memory Archive (Belfast). My research on the repertoires of agency and resistance in feminist music production, distribution and archival practice was published in the edited volume Suffragette Legacy: How Does the History of Feminism Inspire Current Thinking in Manchester in 2015. I hold a BA in Liberal Arts from The Evergreen State College, a MA in Arts Administration and Policy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a MA in Creative and Critical Analysis from Goldsmiths University London. I am currently a doctoral candidate at the Institute for Cultural Practices at the University of Manchester and serve as a trustee for the Manchester District Music Archive. My paper for ACHS 2016 was made possible through the generous support of the Society for Theatre Reseach and the British Sociological Association.

Most of what we experience as heritage emerges into conscious recognition through a complex mixture of political and ideological filters, including nationalism.  In these processes, through a variety of devices (museums, scholarly research, consumer reproduction, etc.), dualistic classifications articulate a powerful hierarchy of value and significance.  In particular, the tangible-intangible pair, given legitimacy by such international bodies as UNESCO, reproduces a selective ordering of cul...

In English and French The two Inuit artists Nina Segalowitz and Taqralik Partridge are offering us an initiation to katajjaniq, this thousand years old autochthonous expression of overtone singing which consists of an alternate dialogue of inhaled and exhaled guttural and vocal sounds.
