Hanna is a PhD student researching the impacts and effects of the Chelsea Embankment construction in 1871-4 on the riverside residents. Her approach combines historical sources and archaeological material on the foreshore in GIS to make creative cultural characterisation maps that allow analysis of changes in the physical, social, and economic landsacpe in the latter half of the 19th century. Using an Assemblage Theory approach and creative writing, Hanna uses narratives of marginalised people within the study area to recreate complex relationships in the past as a way to understand change and persistence in the assemblage of the Chelsea riverside through time.
