Like many design historians, Davinia’s teaching straddles the University and museum worlds. She currently teaches within the School of Art and Design History at Bath Spa University and also within the Musèe du Louvre as an education docent with American company Paris Muse. Her teaching appointments have previously included Kingston University (Design History), the University for the Creative Arts (Fashion Theory) as well as the Victoria & Albert Museum’s 20th Century Design History course for the public. Her research examines 20th century city planning and redevelopment and also the effect of decolonisation and subsequent multiculturalism on the material cultures of Britain and its former colonies in the Caribbean. Her projects span the fields of visual culture, architectural and social history, cultural geography and post-colonial studies.
