Her talk will be on the topic of her work with the Sutton Hoo collection and her consultancy on the 2021 Netflix movie “The Dig”. 

The theme- Pushing Boundaries:

The notion of boundaries, whether real or abstract, literal or philosophical, has been investigated and theorized since ancient times. They are an essential part of identity subject to be constantly negotiated and redefined based on how we ourselves and the world around us change, both past and present.

We seek to provide a platform for postgraduate research students to present their ongoing projects relating to material and visual culture to a broad audience of peers and faculty through a series of interdisciplinary responses, including academic and creative presentations.
