News icon Scholars Speak Podcast: Amanda Hall

In the latest episode of the Scholars Speak podcast, host Michele Martin, the 1999 Mitchell Scholar from Scarborough High School, catches up with Amanda Hall, the 2010 Mitchell Scholar from Mt. Blue High School. Listen up as Hall, who earned a bachelor’s at Yale University, a master’s at Queen’s University Belfast, and a doctorate at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, talks about how a Mitchell Institute-sponsored study abroad opportunity in Northern Ireland changed the course of her life and how that time in Belfast sparked an interest in studying the legacy of Senator Mitchell’s work there that ended decades of sectarian violence. Hall, who was recently appointed an assistant professor of international relations at the University of Reading near London, says the Mitchell Institute “introduced me to the passion I have carried into my professional life.”
