The University of Leicester and Historic England
Participates in 1 Session
I am currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Leicester, in partnership with Historic England. Based in the Archaeology and Ancient History department, the aim of the research is to explore the character of Sikh religious space in the UK whilst critiquing current heritage value approaches. Prior to this I worked at English Heritage (now Historic England) in both the Planning and Conservation, and Heritage Protection departments. I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Heritage Studies from the University of Manchester in 2010, followed by an MA in Arts and Heritage: Policy, Management and Education from Maastricht University, the Netherlands in 2011. I am particularly interested in issues of identity and belonging in a heritage context, how identity is projected into the past and our relationship with the built environment.
