Dr Giulia Champion is a Research Fellow (Anniversary Fellowship) at the University of Southampton.

Her project investigates different communities’ engagement with and representations of the seabed through culture, science communication and policy. It interrogates how these may influence marine governance and the concept of Ocean Justice, with a particular focus on “in/tangible” underwater cultural heritage and the current development of the mining code by the International Seabed Authority.

In 2022, she was a Green Transition Fellow at the Greenhouse at the University of Stavanger. She volunteers for the International Commission of the History of Oceanography and is a co-convenor for the Haunted Shores Network and the Reading Decoloniality Group and a collaborator on the Ecological Reparation Project. Her work has been published in journals including Gothic Studies, Bulletin of Latin American Research, Green Letter, Contemporary French and Francophone Studies and The Journal of Energy History.
