Casaurina has recently completed the MA Cultural Heritage Studies program at University College London, focusing primarily on intangible heritage. Her belief in the value of traditional practices and living heritage may be attributed to her own Caribbean heritage, and the importance she has attributed to the retention of traditions in the formation of cultural identity. Her Masters dissertation research tackles this subject, in looking at the Caribbean diaspora in Southwest England and the conservation of a traditional practice through multi-generational steel-band performance.
During her internship, Casaurina will be assisting us with the preparation and implementation of the international summer school on Communication and Teaching Skills in Conservation and Science to be held at ICCROM from 10 to 21 July 2017.
