Joyce Dartey

University of Ghana

Assistant Lecturer in Archaeology

Country: Ghana

ITP Year: 2009


Joyce is currently an Assistant Lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Ghana.

At the British Museum
During her time on the International Training Programme in 2009, Joyce was based in the Department of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas and her partner placement was spent at The Manchester Museum and Manchester Art Gallery.

An element of the programme was a morning of presentations, in which groups of participants presented a 10-minute illustrated talk, prompted by the task to consider a new display of the fellows cultures at the British Museum.  Joyce’s exhibition proposal, with colleague Gertrude Aba Eyifa-Dzidzienyo, was entitled Beads Speak – Beads from Ghana.

Joyce’s participation on the International Training Programme was generously supported by Allen & Co.

Legacy projects
In March 2010 Joyce attended the Cairo Conference Towards a global network where she presented a paper on what she had gained, both professionally and personally, from attending the ITP and her career development since the programme.
