Scholar, Leeds University

About Eleanor Dufton

My name is Eleanor and I’m a scholar of the 2021 Laidlaw cohort.

I am currently in my fourth and final year at the University of Leeds, studying French and Spanish. I have just spent 18months abroad, working at the memorial of Mont-Valérien, and for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, as well as a British Council teaching assistant in Spain, 

I am hoping to go onto study a MRes at the University of Leeds, focussing on the French Caribbean 'Dissidence' during the Second World War. 

My undergraduate research experience as a Laidlaw scholar has really inspired me to continue decolonial research going forward - please see my posts to find out about my research.
