Dr Nadia Bartolini
Associate Research Fellow


I am currently working with Dr Caitlin DeSilvey on a project investigating how heritage policies and values are managed in the context of landscapes and structures in transformation. The work is part of the AHRC-funded grant ‘Assembling Alternative Futures for Heritage’ (2015-2019). I completed my PhD in Geography at the Open University in 2011, and I hold and MA and BA in Geography from the University of Ottawa (Canada). Before moving to the UK in 2007, I worked over 10 years in Aboriginal research and policy in the Canadian federal government.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Urban cultures
  • Materiality and the built environment
  • Heritage, memory and identity
  • Spirituality, belief systems and wellbeing
  • Aboriginal heritage and land claims

I am a member of the Environment and Sustainability Institute.
