Dr Sarah Mallet

Current Activities:

Sarah Mallet is a post-doctoral researcher at the School of Archaeology and Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford. Her current role consists in researching the visual and material culture of the Calais ‘Jungle’, and she is one of the co-curators of the major temporary exhibition ‘Lande: The Calais ‘Jungle’ and beyond’ on display at the Pitt Rivers Museum until November 2019. The project has developed new approaches to contemporary collecting in impermanent spaces and uses the principles of archaeological methodology to understand and record the lives of undocumented people in the present. She has a multi-disciplinary background, including medieval history and scientific archaeology, and her doctoral research, as part of the English Landscape and Identity Project, was an investigation of legacy isotope data from human and faunal bones from English sites between the Iron Age and the Early Medieval period. Her current research has focused on borders and migrations, as well as the history of camps in Northern France in relation to contemporary events. She is the co-author with Dan Hicks of the book Lande: The Calais ‘Jungle’ and beyond’ published by Bristol University Press in May 2019.
