Calista Williams has been teaching history at Aberystwyth University since 2013. She recently completed her AHRC-funded PhD which was assisted by an innovative collaboration between the Open University and the National Library of Wales. Her thesis focuses on the founding and development of the National Library and its connection with Welsh national identity.
Calista likes nothing better than rooting through boxes of old documents and is fascinated by the history on her doorstep.
