Kalliopi Fouseki holds a Bachelor of Archaeology and Art History from the National Capodistrian University of Athens (Greece), a MA in Cultural Heritage Studies and a PhD in Heritage Management both awarded from UCL. Before coming to London in 2001 to conduct her MA in Cultural Heritage Studies at UCL she worked as an archaeologist at the then Organization for the Construction of the New Acropolis Museum in Athens (current Acropolis Museum). After the completion of her MA degree she worked for the redevelopment of the permanent exhibition of the archaeological museum in Ancient Olympia (Greece). This was followed by her PhD research in Heritage Management at UCL funded by the Greek State Scholarship Foundation and the British Women Federation. Her doctoral research entitled ‘Conflict Resolution in the Management of In-Situ Museums’ adopted an innovative interdisciplinary approach integrating negotiation theories into the heritage management field in the case of in-situ museums, modern structures that enclose in situ conserved archaeological remains. The completion of the thesis was followed by research collaboration at University of York where, as part of the 1807 Commemorated project team (a project funded by AHRC), she investigated the ways in which visitors to exhibitions, commemorating the abolition of the slave trade in the UK, engaged or disengaged from the history of enslavement. In addition, she explored the experience of community members who were consulted during the exhibition development process. She then worked as the New Audience Advocate at the Audience Research and Advocacy Unit of the Science Museum and as an Associate Lecturer at the Open University of UK, Greece and Cyprus before joining the Centre for Sustainable Heritage in August 2011.
Kalliopi Fouseki is a member of the Complex Built Environment Systems Research Group (CBES) at UCL Bartlett School of Graduate Studies (BSGS). She is also a Co-Investigator for the ‘Collections Demography’ project, a project funded by the UK AHRC/EPSRC Science & Heritage Programme
(http://www.bartlett.ucl.ac.uk/graduate/csh/research/projects/collections-demography) and a Co-Investigator for the 'Mind the Gap' research project funded by AHRC. In addition, she is co-leading with the UCL Centre for Applied Archaeology a European Research Network on Heritage Values funded by the Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage and Global Change (http://www.jpi-culturalheritage.eu/). She is also leading a research project on 'Economic Crisis, Heritage and Identity' funded by the UCL European Institute and public engagement project which was awarded a Beacon bursary from the UCL Public Engagement Unit. As part of this project residents in Waltham Forest are engaged in discussions about energy efficiency in "old" buildings. Through novel visual methods she will explore and co-create with the residents an exhibition on this issue.
Her research interests combine the fields of museology, cultural heritage, anthropology, reception studies, heritage management and public archaeology. Her expertise lies in the areas of negotiation theories and conflict management in the heritage sector, value-led heritage management, community engagement and participatory planning models, audience development, and the application of qualitative and quantitative research methods to heritage studies. She has published in a diverse range of peer-reviewed journals and edited books and has co-edited the book Representing Enslavement and Abolition: Ambiguous Engagements published by Routledge.
She is supervising the following PhD students:
Maria Shehade (Primary supervisor) The resolution of cultural property disputes: a way forward
George Neris (Primary supervisor) Towards the economic and social sustainability of art and heritage organisations in an economic crisis framework through community action: a comparative study between Greece and the UK
