Added on Friday, January 15th, 2016
The ICC is delighted to welcome new research fellow, Chiara Zuanni, who joins the institute after completing a Museology PhD at the Institute for Cultural Practices, University of Manchester.
Together with ICC Head of Research for Cultural Policy, Dr. Beatriz García, Chiara will play a key role in a newly commissioned programme of research focusing on the impacts of Liverpool’s year as European Capital of Culture ten years on from the event. Liverpool 2018: Evaluating the legacies of the European Capital of Culture 10 years on is being supported with kick-starter funding from the AHRC Cultural Engagement Fund and will build directly on the data baseline and methodological framework established by the ground-breaking Impacts 08 research programme, with the aim of identifying and measuring the lasting impacts of the Capital of Culture year ahead of its ten year anniversary in 2018.
Chiara holds a BA in Classics and an MA in Archaeology from the University of Bologna, and has worked in museums in Italy and in Germany prior to coming to the UK. She is interested in the impact of cultural practices on professionals’ expertise and on public engagement, especially in relation to digital media.
Alongside this new appointment, Chiara will continue to contribute to research on digital engagement at the University of Manchester, in addition to acting as a teaching assistant on the university’s Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology courses.
