She is also a member of the advisory board for Tate’s new digital project on the sculptural practices of Henry Moore. Her other involvements in research projects include being part of the Leverhulme-funded international network Enchanted Modernities: Theosophy, Modernism and the Arts, c.1875–1960, co-principal investigator on the AHRC-funded network Internationalism and Cultural Exchange 1870–1920, and co-founder of the South Asian Arts Group. She has also worked on a number of exhibitions including Gilbert & George: Major Exhibition (Tate Modern, 2009) and William Etty: Art & Controversy (York Art Gallery, 2011), and developed an online version of this latter display in collaboration with York Museums Trust and the University of York’s Digital Library Team.
