Rebekah is completing a Collaborative Doctoral Award with supervisors from the University of Oxford and the National Trust. Her work considers the intersection between coloniality, visuality and heritage, using the National Trust's collections to explore the ways in which country houses and their aesthetics were used in the early twentieth century, with a particular focus on photography. Rebekah is using an archival approach and is interested in the materiality of photographs and documents. She is particularly interested in how colonialism shaped the ways in which visions of the past were formulated by the National Trust and how these impact perceptions of its properties today. Her work sits at the intersection of archaeology and history and uses both historical and contemporary materials.
