Gwennan Mair Schiavone


Gwennan Schiavone graduated in Modern Welsh Studies at Aberystwyth University. After securing a Postgraduate Research Scholarship, she started her research doctorate looking at women's involvement in the Welsh Presbyterian Church's Overseas Mission in north eastern India, focusing on the period between 1887 and 1930. Her thesis looks specifically at the missionaries' backgrounds and their work in the missionary field, and considered the response to their work from congregations in Wales, particularly the female congregation who expressed particular interest and support for the Missionary Cause.
