Noa is a first-year PhD student at the European Institute, LSE. Her research explores on the legacies of cultural violence and heritage destruction in post-conflict contexts. She is particularly interested in the social impact of this form of violence on collective identity formation processes, the role of cultural violence in nationalist discourses, and the overall implications for post-conflict peacebuilding efforts. Noa focuses on visual culture and its interpretations in examining these themes.
Noa holds a BA Hons in Modern European Studies from the University of Nottingham, and an MSc in Conflict Studies from the Department of Government, LSE. In 2020, she was awarded the prize for the Best Dissertation of her MSc Conflict Studies cohert. Aside from academia, Noa has professional experience in policy research dealing with hate speech, in public affairs, and in qualitative research for private and third-sector clients.
Noa is a recipient of the London Arts and Humanities Partnership - a scholarship co-funded by the LSE and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
