Amanda Hall is currently a PhD candidate at the University of St Andrews, following study at Queen’s University Belfast (M.A. Politics, 2015) and Yale University (B.A. American Studies, 2014). Her current research investigates the ‘inter-referendum’ years in Northern Ireland, from the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998 to the Brexit referendum in 2016. Her thesis, currently titled ‘Shaped by Strained Peace: Division in Inter-Referendum Northern Ireland, 1998 – 2016’ investigates the quality of peace in Northern Ireland, with attention on key themes of segregation, justice, and globalisation and their role in shaping the region over the period in question.
