Speaker information

Dr Jessica Moody,University of Portsmouth,Joined the University of Portsmouth in 2014 from the University of York where I was a Research Associate with the Institute for the Public Understanding of the Past (IPUP). I completed my PhD in History at York and taught undergraduate and postgraduate History, including on the University’s Public History MA programme. I also have a professional background in museums, having previously worked for National Museums Liverpool, and have a Master’s degree in Cultural Heritage Management (York, 2008). My research interests focus around heritage, public history, collective memory, and the various ways in which people engage with (and have historically engaged with) the past. I have particular interests in engagements with dissonant heritage and difficult histories, in particular the representation of transatlantic slavery in the Atlantic world, and in national commemorations and anniversaries such as the centenary of the First World War.
