Dr Jane-Heloise Nancarrow is an interdisciplinary, early-career researcher based at the University of Western Australia (UWA). She has additional affiliations with the Centre for Medieval Studies, University of York, and the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (1100-1800). She is currently working as a Digital Arts Project Officer in collaboration with the Cultural Precinct at UWA.
Jane-Heloise’s research encompasses classicism, spolia and re-use in the Middle Ages; 3D modelling and viualisation for cultural heritage; Normanitas in the architecture of Holy Roman Emperor, Frederick II; the ‘digital uncanny’; object theory; translation and appropriation in texts or digital media; and twelfth-century Latin literature. Jane-Heloise is excited by the potential for emerging visualisation technologies to change the way we study and interpret the material past.
Jane-Heloise’s first monograph “The Roman Material Past in Anglo-Norman England” will be published by York Medieval Press in early 2018, and she has recently completed a 2016 digital heritage project collaborating with researchers across Australia and four UK museums: ‘Emotions3D: Bringing Digital Heritage to Life’.
Jane-Heloise completed her doctorate in medieval archaology and literature at the University of York in 2014. Prior to this she undertook her Masters and undergraduate degrees in medieval studies at the University of Western Australia.
