Every lightning speaker will be answering a question after their talk, to ask a question or upvote other people's questions please go to Slido.
I have worked at UCL for 3.5 years in this role, having previously worked at the RSC, National Trust and Shaw Theatre. My role is to promote participation in culture across the UCL community through high quality events/activity, whether it’s as an organiser, performer/speaker or audience member, and to promote UCL excellence to the wider public.
Lighting talk: a brief intro into the process of external hires and internal UCL usage of the Theatre, Studio and Museums.
I work as an Area Liaison Coordinator and Area Liaison Librarian for Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Eurasia and am based at UCL SSEES Library. Myself and my team are responsible for academic liaison at SSEES and development of SSEES Library collections, which are UCL's Flagship Collections. I am also a committee member of COSEELIS (Council for Slavonic and East European Library and Information Services), which represent the interests of UK libraries offering services in the field of Slavonic and East European studies. I frequently participate in conferences, including Fiesole in St Peterburg, and ASEEES in Boston. My interests include Information Science, History and Culture with particular interest on Eastern Europe.
Lighting talk: SSEES Library and the Ukrainian Conflict
I have worked at several local, national and university museums in the UK over the past 20 years. I earned my PhD from the University of Liverpool, and have also worked on archaeological sites in Egypt and Sudan for over 10 years. I’m especially passionate about using archaeological collections in object-based learning.
Lightning talk: Women and Hieroglyphs at UCL: A Lasting Legacy
UCL was at the core of the development of teaching and learning ancient languages in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This short talk will present a current UCL student collaboration exploring the vital impact of female teachers and students at UCL in teaching ancient Egyptian languages, and the legacy of their work today – 200 years since the translation of hieroglyphs in 1822.
I have been managing the Student Centre since it opened in 2019, it’s open 24/7 and is one of the most amazing and varied places to work.
