Hello from sunny Leicester!
I'm a research associate and honorary fellow at the University of Leicester, UK. My doctoral research looked at the collection, interpretation and display of the visual culture of the Cultural Revolution in British museums and a book based on my thesis - Museum Representations of Maoist China - will be published by Ashgate later this year.
