Sandra Camarda is Assistant Professor in Public History with a specialisation in Transmedia Storytelling. Her academic background is in visual anthropology and museology. She holds a Master’s in Museum Anthropology and a PhD in Anthropology from UCL (University College London), with a specialisation in the history of photography. A substantial part of her postdoctoral work was dedicated to researching the use of photographic collections in private and institutional practices.
She first joined the University of Luxembourg in 2013 as the recipient of an FNR/Marie Curie Actions postdoctoral fellowship on the production and circulation of historical images of Luxembourg in relation to the process of nation-building.
Afterwards, she curated and coordinated the digital public history project « Éischte Weltkrich », an online exhibition on the Great War in Luxembourg.
Her research interests focus on public history, transmedia storytelling, and cultural heritage, particularly the strategies of use and display of museum collections in both real and virtual environments, edutainment, game design, and interactive narratives.
