Having completed a BA in History and Politics at the University of Keele, I came to the University of St. Andrews in 2013 to begin an M.Litt in Modern History. Supervised by Dr. Stephen Tyre who oversaw my M.Litt dissertation, I began my PhD the following year, working under the tentative title of ‘Decolonising White Africa: Examining the Experiences of Algerians and Kenyans’. Through conducting wide-scale interviews with those present in the countries during the end of European colonial holdings, I hope to discern how white Kenyans and Pied Noir that remained in Kenya and Algeria after decolonisation came to view themselves and their place in society.
