In their BSR Fellowship projects, Paul Eastwood and Hester Schadee were both interested in hegemonic language and the tangible remains of the past (Eastwood: Boustrophedon: A Legacy Left in Stone and Ruin; Schadee: Roman Relics and Renaissance Collectors). They collaborated for a mini-exhibition entitled Memento Monumenta, which explored notions of remembrance through pseudo-facsimile funerary artefacts and inscriptions.
Paul Eastwood is a Wales-based artist who treats art as a form of cultural storytelling. He creates imagined histories and futures to investigate how place and objects can communicate cultural identities. Eastwood was the Creative Wales-BSR Fellow 2020 and was the winner of the inaugural NOVA Art Prize, Wales in 2018.http://paul-eastwood.net/
Hester Schadee is interested in the uses and abuses of the past, including classical reception and the history of scholarship, with a research focus on humanism in the Italian Renaissance. She is Senior Lecturer in European History at the University of Exeter and was BSR Balsdon Fellow in 2020.https://humanities.exeter.ac.uk/history/staff/schadee/
