Shelley Angelie Saggar

Shelley Angelie Saggar is a CHASE funded PhD researcher and museum worker based in the School of English at the University of Kent. Her project examines representations of the museum in Indigenous literature and film from North America and Aotearoa/New Zealand, asking how methods drawn from Indigenous literary studies can contribute to decolonial heritage practices both within and beyond the museum. She also works as a researcher at the Science Museum, where she focuses on culturally sensitive items in the Wellcome Historical Medical Museum collection. She is the founder of The Decolonial Dictionary, a project aimed at unpacking postcolonial theory and examining problematic terminology in heritage spaces.
