Dr Kimberley Weir recently completed a PhD in the Department of History at the University of Nottingham. Her thesis examined the extent to which the United States’ colonial rule of the Philippines (1898-1946) shaped the country’s memorial landscape over the course of the twentieth century. This PhD formed part of the Cultures of Occupation in Twentieth Century Asia (COTCA) project, funded by the European Research Council. Kimberley also has an undergraduate degree in American and English Studies from the University of Nottingham, and a Masters in Art Gallery and Museum Studies from the University of Manchester. She is Secretary for the Association of Southeast Asian Studies in the UK.
