Biography

My interest in war began when I joined a digital history project – The First World War Letters of H.J.C. Peirs – in my junior year at Gettysburg College, which opened my eyes to new ways of experiencing, sharing, and writing the history of war. Though I am broadly interested in France during the 20th century, I am especially fascinated with the First World War and its impact on French women. My other research interests include the experience of women refugees, the negotiation of gender identity during times of conflict, and trauma.
