sarah 2Sarah Morton (Keble College, Oxford)- Sarah is an AHRC-funded PhD candidate at Keble College, Oxford working on her thesis entitled ‘The legacies of repatriation of human remains’ in collaboration with the Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons. The project employs archival and ethnographic methods to explore how repatriation is put into practice and what happens subsequently to repatriated remains. The project will show how human remains are socially and materially constructed and the different meanings and associations repatriated remains hold for different stakeholders in the repatriation process. Sarah is also a qualified conservator, specialising in archaeology, and has previously worked with Oxford County Council Museums.
