News: contribution to Association of Critical Heritage Studies 2024 international conference

The first formal presentation on my Fellowship research-in-progress took place at ACHS 2024 Galway on 5 June. The conference theme was ‘Custodianship’, my paper assigned to a session on ‘Responsibility: Cultural Stewardship across Borders – Navigating the Complexities of Global and Local Heritage Responsibilities’. I addressed the part that changing custodianship and movement plays in the Stone’s contemporary meanings and future potential. The audience ought to have come away with a good sense of the richness and complexities surrounding this most high-profile example of domestic repatriation in the United Kingdom!
