Project Researchers, Doctoral Candidates

Alice Millar

I am a Project Researcher on CARMAH’s Challenging Populist Truth-Making in Europe (CHAPTER) project researching digital solutions to political problems in museums. My research will focus on how British museums are affected by populism (and vice versa), dealing with issues of truth-making, authenticity and authority. I will conduct my research at a London museum in 2021-2022.

My previous research dissertations have focussed on sensory and digital anthropology. My master’s dissertation ‘Sonic systems of knowledge: an ethnographic study of the use and value of sound in museums’, focussed on sound and affect in British museums and exhibitions. I have spent several years working and volunteering in museums and similar institutions around the U.K. and have enjoyed balancing theory and practice in my work.
