Rebekah Hodgkinson

Rebekah Hodgkinson works as a research assistant at the Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford, and is project coordinator for a National Trust and V&A collaborative project, ‘Private’ Spaces for Public Benefit? Historic Houses as Sites for Research and Knowledge Exchange Innovation, at the V&A’s research institute. She recently submitted her PhD thesis at the University of Oxford, completed in collaboration with the National Trust. Rebekah’s thesis brings a new understanding to the colonial histories of National Trust country houses by considering the Trust’s institutional history, focusing on the influence of British imperialism on the construction of heritage in the twentieth century in Britain, South Asia, and North America.
