Joanna Mackenthun is a student on the DPhil in Information, Communication & the Social Sciences.

Joanna’s research focuses on junctures between mobile Augmented Reality environments, critical heritage visualisations and post/decolonial historiography. Their work examines technological interventions to canonical spatial histories and centralises hegemonically underrepresented perspectives. In this context, Joanna is particularly interested in interdisciplinary approaches to critical knowledge reproduction and immersive learning experiences in relation to Mobile Augmented Reality applications. Prior to joining the OII, Joanna worked with a number of non-profit organisations in the field of critical museum practices and community outreach. They hold Master’s degrees from King’s College London and Potsdam University, and undergraduate qualifications from RCSSD and UAL.
