Cambridge Reproduction SRI

 

I coordinate the Reproduction SRI, and am responsible for helping it grow as an interdisciplinary research network. I am involved in developing the SRI's research strategy, facilitating introductions and external interactions and building partnerships within and outside the University. I also manage the SRI's communications, fundraising and programme of events and activities.

I read English and Philosophy at the University of Cambridge, where I subsequently did an MPhil in Philosophy, with a particular interest in the philosophy of historically informed musical performance. I later did postgraduate training in heritage conservation at UCL, and spent more than 15 years working as a museum conservator, researcher and journal editor. I also started (but was unable to complete for personal reasons) doctoral research into the public image and understanding of heritage conservation, and I retain a keen interest in outreach and engagement; for three years, I was a co-host on the podcast The C Word, and I have also taught a regular professional development course about writing for publication. Throughout, I have had a interest in "reproduction" in its broadest sense - how we reproduce experiences and knowledge (especially at a temporal distance), and how "reproduction" and "restoration" intersect with issues of authenticity, significance and ethics for material culture.
