    About

    PhD Research Student at Manchester Metropolitan University in Art History. Disputing Jewish and Christian Identities in Nineteenth Century Paintings. My project will investigate the representation of Jews in a selection of British and European nineteenth century paintings with the aim of making a contribution to the diverse field of Jewish studies. It will examine paintings undertaken by non-Jewish and Jewish artists. I am interested in inter-disciplinary approaches to Jewish studies, Biblical/Religious studies, Hebrew Bible, Jewish-Christian relations, understanding and representing the Shoah. I am particularly interested in visual culture, especially painting and film and how such human made cultural objects carry meaning. Awarded MA (Religions and Theology/Jewish Studies) with distinction from Manchester University in 2015. Awarded the Benard Jackson Prize for the highest mark in a Jewish studies related dissertation. 2015. In 2011, I accepted voluntary severance from a post as Head of Department at a sixth form college and decided to return to higher education to pursue an academic career. I had led and managed two departments, one of them I established from scratch. Whilst working at the college, I completed a part time MA in Screen Studies, and a graduate certificate in Religions and Theology (as a distance learner) amongst other short courses. Since leaving my most recent post, I have undertaken workshops and demonstration sessions, photographic assignments and some private teaching. Before taking that post, I worked in a number of adult centres, further education colleges and a hospital as an art and/or media teacher. I also undertook freelance work as an artist and photographer. As a student I worked in a theatre as lighting operator, stage hand, photographer and set painter. I have also worked as a part time examiner for the AQA exam board.
