Dr Emily Bridger


I completed my undergraduate degree in History and International Development at Dalhousie University in Canada, before reading for a MSc in African Studies at the University of Oxford in 2012. In 2013, I began my doctoral research here at Exeter under the supervision of Dr Stacey Hynd, during which I spent a year as a visiting research fellow in Johannesburg at the University of the Witwatersrand. After completing my PhD thesis in 2016, I taught at both Exeter and Plymouth University for a year before beginning my current post as Lecturer in Global and Imperial History.
