Rachel Hughes

 

Rachel is a human geographer with wide-ranging interests in the geographies of law, geopolitics, public memory and visual and material cultures. Her research has largely focussed on issues of memory, justice and geopolitics in reference to late-twentieth century Cambodia.

She is the author of a number of book chapters and journal articles on the contested memory of the Khmer Rouge regime, and a co-editor of the collection Observant States: geopolitics and visual culture (IB Tauris, 2010). In 2016-2019, as an ARC DECRA Fellow, she examined the United Nations-assisted criminal tribunal, the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (the Khmer Rouge Tribunal). Her focus in this project has been on the reparations facilitated by the tribunal in cooperation with international donors, Cambodian non-government organisations, artists and victim-survivors. Continuing her interest in 'difficult heritage', Rachel has recently co-authored a book on museum visitor experience in Rome, Italy, and at Melbourne Museum (Palgrave, 2020).
