Vibe Nielsen is PhD Fellow at the University of Copenhagen. Between 2015 and 2016 she worked at the National Museum of Denmark as Curator of Public Programmes. She received her Master Degree in Museum Studies at University College London in 2012 and her Master Degree in Modern Culture at the University of Copenhagen in 2015. In the final thesis of her MA in Museum Studies she explored the dissemination of the British involvement in the transatlantic slave trade in museums in London and Liverpool. This was an aspect she researched further in the final thesis of her MA in Modern Culture, where she analysed how Danish and British museums in different ways are dealing with their countries’ colonial pasts. As part of the Global Europe project Vibe Nielsen explores how the collection, circulation, classification and museum exhibition of objects define Europe from the outside in. Her research takes place in museums in South Africa as well as in European museums, using anthropological, historical and museological methods.
