Katy Bunning

Dr. Katy Bunning is a Lecturer in the School of Museum Studies at University of Leicester, and part of the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries where she pursues collaborative research into museums, racism, and racial justice movements. Katy’s recent book Negotiating Race and Rights in the Museum (2021) unpacks the changing manifestations of white normativity in museums in the USA, and the racial politics that have shaped the evolution of museum cultures over time. Her current research focuses on supporting structural and cultural shifts within museums, amidst a changing ethical landscape.
