Project Title: The Seychelles Islands and Forced Migrations in the Indian Ocean during the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries.
Supervised by Dr Giacomo Macola.
The CHASE scholarship has been very flexible in allowing me to apply for assistance with language training to suit my specific needs, enabling me to travel to various archives in Europe, and I have received support in arranging possible work placements for next year. Before starting my PhD I was doing a full-time Research MA and surviving by working two part time jobs which felt almost impossible. Now I am very happy to be able to entirely focus on my research and know that I can ask for help with any extra training I need.
