Carol Dixon receives PhD in African Art

Story by Carol Dixon
I was born and raised in Burngreave and so Sheffield was my first choice of University to pursue my PhD research, examining the history, cultural geographies and exhibition of African art displayed in Western museums and galleries. I am currently working on an education
resource pack about Caribbean social and religious history.
I visited my old school, Firth Park Academy, to share my story with students. It was wonderful to meet them and I will be returning to give an assembly next year. To hear more about my work and future projects please visit my blog:

We’d love to hear from more of Burngreave’s people about how they think the Burngreave Messenger could best serve the community, so we’ve created an opportunity for you to tell us what you’d like us to do.
