Alice Tyrell

Director for Academic Programs & London Librarian


Alice Tyrell first joined the London Global Gateway in 1999, and now serves as both Director of Academic Programs, and as London Global Gateway Librarian, managing both the LGG Library, and the G.K. Chesterton collection, and supporting teaching and learning in a variety of ways across the many programs that use the London Global Gateway. As part of both roles, she coordinates and co-teaches the Kennedy Scholars seminar each semester.

Before joining Notre Dame, Tyrell worked for The Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine, the London Library, and the UK Friends of the New Alexandrian Library. She is a Chartered Librarian, and volunteers as a governor for an East-London Catholic girls’ school.

Tyrell is a committed Londoner, and has an MA in British History from Birkbeck, University of London, focused on the history of London. She is particularly interested in issues of gender, class and sexuality, and how that intersects with immigration and housing issues in London and beyond. She is very happy to answer questions about her city, as well as your studies and research.
