In addition to working as an educator at Tate and the National Portrait Gallery, Dr Hicks has lectured at American universities such as Pepperdine and Syracuse and is the host of the Start Art History podcast.

Lady Carnarvon 
Fiona, 8th Countess of Carnarvon, is the wife of Geordie, 8th Earl of Carnarvon. They live at Highclere Castle, known to millions around the world as “Downton Abbey”.
Lady Carnarvon is the best-selling author of 5 books, an historian, an international speaker and fundraiser in the UK and abroad. Lady Carnarvon, her husband and son live 'quietly' with seven dogs, a number of  horses and ponies, a brood of chickens, several bee hives and some rare breed pigs, amongst the normal farm animals in the farm and landscape of Highclere Castle today.
A love of travel and reading is part of Lady Carnarvon’s DNA. Following a degree at St Andrew’s University, she trained as a Chartered Accountant with what is now PWC. Highclere offers both an anchor to the past as well as seeking to innovate and play a part in a modern world, with social media such as Instagram, Lady Carnarvon’s weekly blog, podcast and her latest exciting venture “Friends of Highclere”.
