Gabriela Petkova-Campbell

Gabriela Petkova-Campbell completed an MA course in French Studies at Sofia University and undertook a second MA course in Museum Studies at Newcastle University in 2001. She was then offered a doctoral candidacy at the same University, where she has further developed her Masters research interests into PhD research with an accent on comparative museology. She was awarded her PhD in 2007 and has since published a monograph and numerous academic papers discussing and comparing museological models in different European countries. A reviewer for European and American Museum Studies journals, she has also contributed to various edited volumes in English, French, Czech and Serbian languages. Currently Gabriela Petkova-Campbell is living and working between Paris and Sofia where she continues her research on the uses and misuses of history in museums in Southeast Europe.
