Tiffany Thompson studies women’s history in modern Britain and Ireland. Before joining the history department at Boston College as a doctoral student in 2020, she earned a B.A. in history from the University of California, Irvine and completed a M.A. in European history, politics and society from Columbia University. Continuing the work she started with her master’s thesis on the activist Bernadette Devlin, she is particularly interested in women’s political participation and activism during the civil rights movement and the Troubles in Northern Ireland.
