As an undergraduate Dr Fear-Segal studied at the University of East Anglia and as a postgraduate at University College London and Harvard University.

She spent two separate years as a visiting lecturer at the Sorbonne Nouvelle, Paris teaching American Civilization, and also a brief stint as a script writer for the BBC World Service. She spent the academic year, 1999-2000, at Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania , on an academic teaching exchange with Professor Amy Farrell. The nineteenth and early twentieth century have been my main focus, but land disputes, education, missionary activity, and issues of identity interest me in all periods.
