Emilia is a doctoral researcher

Emilia Sánchez González is a PhD researcher at the Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) in Luxembourg, working on the FNR-funded research and transmedia project Tracing the Legacy of Edward Steichen: A Glocal Approach to the International Reception and National Heritagisation of the “Family of Man'' Exhibition.

She holds a master's degree from the UNESCO program in World Heritage Studies at BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg and additional training in translation and social museology. She has experience working in museums, universities and NGOs in Mexico, the United States, and Germany, notably the J. Paul Getty Museum and the U.S. National Committee of ICOMOS. Her interests include transculturality, public participation, heritage transmission and safeguarding, post-colonial contexts, digital storytelling, memory, and migration.

Within the project, supervised by Prof. Dr. Andreas Fickers and realized in collaboration with the Centre National de l'Audiovisuel (CNA), Emilia will combine interdisciplinary approaches to create a deep-mapping visualization of the complex history of the exhibition's itinerancy.
