Roisin received a First Class Honours in History of Art at the University of York (2014), under the supervision of Dr Emanuele Lugli. After spending a year learning French in Paris, Roisin then completed an MSt. in Medieval Studies at the University of Oxford (2016), where she was supervised by Professor Gervase Rosser and Professor Martin Kauffmann. In 2017, Roisin was awarded a CHASE AHRC studentship as a PhD candidate at the University of Kent’s Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies, under the supervision of Dr Emily Guerry.
This blog originally started during Roisin’s undergraduate degree and has since then flourished into a documentation of Roisin’s life as a PhD student. You’ll find tips and general ramblings about study and all things academia, just with a splash of me reminiscing about French Parisian life for good measure.
