Anna is a second year DPhil student in Archaeology at Oxford, specialising in skill, creativity, and cognition in pottery-making.
She completed her undergraduate degree in Archaeology and Anthropology at Keble College, Oxford (2018) and holds a Master's degree in Principles of Conservation from UCL (2019).
She has a strong interest in outreach, student representation, and education more broadly. In the 2020/21 academic year, she was a member of the Graduate Archaeology at Oxford (GAO) Committee.
As part of her internship at the Centre for Teaching and Learning, Anna is working on the Race and the curriculum project.
Coming from Archaeology and Anthropology – disciplines that are bound up in extractive practices and colonial legacies, I have a longstanding interest in how we can move towards ‘decoloniality’ in the subjects we study. I am therefore excited to work on this ambitious project, as it has the potential to bring about meaningful change at the University.
