Hannah Smyth

I am a Lecturer (Teaching) on the Archives and Records Management and the Digital Humanities postgraduate programmes. I am also Admissions Tutor for the ARM programme.

I recently completed my MSCA-funded PhD (2021) at UCL titled: The Decade of Centenaries and the Irish commemorative impulse: gender, identity and digital cultural heritage, and supervised by Andrew Flinn and Julianne Nyhan. As part of my studies I was a member of the doctoral consortium Critical Heritage Studies and the Future of Europe: Towards an integrated, interdisciplinary and transnational training model in cultural heritage research and management (CHEurope).

My research interests are in critical heritage studies and feminist digital humanities.
