Kristy Warren researches the social and political history of British colonialism in the Caribbean and the lingering legacies of this past in the region and the United Kingdom. Kristy has worked on a number of research projects. Most recently she was a research associate at the University of Leicester working on a collaborative project with the University of Guyana entitled ‘Mental Neurological and Substance Use Disorders in Guyana’s jails, 1825 to the present day.’ Other projects include the ‘Legacies of British-Slave Ownership’ project at UCL, and the ‘Common Cause’ and ‘Bigger Picture’ projects at the University Nottingham. She also works with cultural institutions to help create content and programming that better reflects the histories, experiences and desires of marginalised individuals and groups in the UK.
