Saffron East









I’m a postgraduate research student in the History Department at UCL, looking at Black politics in postwar Britain. I did a BA in History at the University of East Anglia and a master’s in Public History and Cultural Heritage at Trinity College Dublin before taking a short break from academia. I worked in museums, archives and the arts/ heritage sector for a while. Then I completed a CELTA (certificate in teaching English as a second/other language) and spent just over a year teaching English in France (Nancy), working with adults, young learners and at universities.
